I started The Handless Project because I needed to heal (physically from thyroid cancer and emotionally from a lot of other things) and this weird old story about a girl who heals herself was so helpful to me that I wondered whether it would help other people too.
An all-night vigil and 24 hour pilgrimage around the streets and green spaces of Liverpool, inspired by the fairy tale The Handless Maiden, and the personal stories of people living and working in the city of Liverpool.
To collect stories, you really have to listen. On the 20th May 2017 myself and two colleagues Vicci Riley and Joanne Tremarco, will be walking around the city of Liverpool for a whole day. Long stretches of this walk will be conducted without speaking.
Marketing deadlines have forced me to make decisions about the project that I don’t feel quite ready to make, but putting them into my workflow hasn’t hurt me. I have made the decisions and feel that they were the right ones.
After sunset, walk with us to @17lovelane for a beautiful italian meal, & to celebrate & reflect on the long journey https://t.co/PaYUXd24d0
After supper, continue the journey through Liverpool, towards Everton Brow. Watch the sunset over the city, accompanied by Steve Boyland.
We'll then walk north through the city, arriving at @HomebakedA for a restorative supper of pies & song. Join us! https://t.co/7SnSzMLtNB
After breakfast, we walk through South Liverpool, arriving for lunch and a rest at Calderstones Park around midday.. https://t.co/VN5JWYGYvM
