(walkshop in 3 parts – Girona, Olot, Vic) 

The urban landscape is awash with language calling out for our attention. Words pursue us in the form of advertising, corporate insignia, shop signage, but also in other forms. Sentences and scrawls appear all over the city on the side of walls, in toilet stalls or carved into tables. Through the process of dérive we will wander through the city looking for compelling pieces of text which complement or are in conflict with each other either aesthetically or thematically. Participants will take photos of language they encounter in order to create a collective visual collage where text is prominently featured.

Maximum number of participants: 8
Duration of walkshop: 90 minutes for the walk, followed by a meeting of between 30-60 minutes at the end to create a digital collage together.
Three sessions: Girona, Olot, Vic
Needs: Smartphone with camera (please make sure the phone has an adequate amount of battery before the start of the walk)

Walk and write the word "Peace" all over the world, exploring locative media and the city as a canvas, the body as a pencil and the city as a body. During the workshop “Alphabet of the City” we gamify a map, for peace, and we offer a one week trial of CGeomap to build yourself a mini-project.
