More than human walking

Lab2PT, Landscape, Heritage and Territory Laboratory, is a R&D unit of the University of Minho focused on Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities. Currently, it comprises integrated researchers, from different scientific areas (Archaeology, Architecture and Urbanism, Design, Geography, Geology, History and Visual Arts), PhD students and other collaborators. Such critical mass converges to a common interest in the study of the territory, its landscapes and heritage, which are understood as the material, spatial and cultural expressions of societies over time.

WALK is a research project dedicated to the practice of walking [as] an artistic practice. We research with and through walking, we teach what we learn and we seek to share what we know and discover. We disseminate what we do and also what artists and authors who express themselves and produce art by walking.


Walking Arts & Local Communities (WALC) is an artistic cooperation project, co-funded by the European Union, Creative Europe, starting in January 2024 for four years. With seven partners from five countries, WALC establishes an International Center for Artistic Research and Practice of Walking Arts, in Prespa, Greece, at the border with Albania and North Macedonia, backed up by an online counterpart in the format of a digital platform for walking arts.

WALC builds on the previous work of hundreds of artists and researchers already practicing Walking Arts as a collaborative medium, and having met at the significant previous walking arts events and encounters in Greece, Portugal, Spain, France, Belgium, and during online activities at walk · listen · create.

We acknowledge the support of the EU Creative Europe Cooperation grant program in the framework of the European project WALC (Walking Arts and Local Community).
