Concept and General Coordination: Herman Bashiron Mendolicchio and Clara Garí.

Organised in collaboration with: The University of Girona (Chair for Geography and Territorial Thought); Bòlit Centre d’Art Contemporani de Girona; Contemporary Art Center Nau Côclea; The Landscape Observatory of Catalonia; Olot City Hall; University of Vic-Central University of Catalonia; Deriva Mussol and the Contemporary Art Center AcVic.

We invite you to submit papers and creative proposals for the International Encounter and Conference “Walking Art and Relational Geographies” that will take place in Girona, Olot and Vic from the 7th to the 11th of July 2020.

As the instinctive essence and principle of human movement, the practice of walking today fosters enriching and complex interactions between territories, cultures, creativity, communities, thought and public space. Walking becomes – or rather returns to be – an urgent and necessary perspective through which to look, analyse and understand the contemporary world.

Walking as a philosophy and a reflection, walking as an awareness of the emergence and demands of sustainability, walking as the beginning of the journey and as the endless experience of knowledge and discovery. Walking as a point of contact between the I and the other, as a tool for relations between people and territories in their transformational processes. Walking as an artistic practice.

These lines and paths point to a field of action and analysis crossing through many practical and conceptual territories –where culture, art, anthropology, geography, education and ecology intertwine- requiring urgent exploration.

The international meeting “Walking Art and Relational Geographies” aims to create a dialogue between theory and practice, where walking becomes an instrument of territorial connection, a mapping tool and a format of creative expression. A meeting point of debate, experience and reflection, “Walking Art and Relational Geographies” will focus mainly on the analysis of the increasingly mediated relationship between people and geographies.
