Do you like to travel on foot? Grand Tour is a 250km walk with poets, dancers, storytellers, visual artists and musicians. 21 days across beautiful landscape and hidden places in Catalonia, it is a shared celebration and this year, you can be part of it. Learn from previous Grand Tourists what such an adventure entails: Pau Catà, a researcher studying cabinets of curiosities, artist residencies and artists communities, Zoe Balasch, a dancer, Tamsin Grainger sound walk composer, and Anna Piatou a photo-performer. Come and share with us what we are planning for Grand Tour 2024 in August. The trip will start in the Pyrenees and end in Barcelona, where travellers will enter the city by a most unexpected place.

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.

desire path

A term mostly used by town planners or architects to describe the short-cut paths created by people. So a path around a square ‘green’ will often have a desire path cutting off the corners. Town planners recognise them as an admission that the initial path was put in the wrong place. Called ‘Elephant Paths’ in some countries.
