The Agoraphobic Traveller

The Agoraphobic Traveller

Meet the artist who photographed the world without leaving home.The roads available on Google Street View have led Jacqui Kenny to places that she never thought she could go. She is one of the thousands of people around the world who experiences agoraphobia. For her, even the thought of leaving the house is enough to generate stress and panic attacks, making everyday activities like going to the shop or to work difficult, or even impossible.

By taking screenshots of remote places Jacqui has amassed over 50K followers on her Instagram account in just a few months. Travelling this way and being able to go to the places that she could only imagine, has allowed Jacqui to find her voice. She’s able to express herself, which means a lot for someone who finds it difficult to venture outside their comfort zone. As Jacqui puts it: “Agoraphobia and anxiety limit my ability to travel, so I’ve found another way to see the world.” View website .

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
