Soazic Guezennec is managing “Happy tourists”, the first and unique travel agency inviting people to get lost.

Convinced that discovery is more about personal experiences than expected outcome, Soazic uses artistic practice to design creative impulses which distract tourists from attractions, emphasize drifting in the unknown, and allow for unexpected encounters. Situations result in journeys which are personal, unplanned, rewarding, authentic, not guaranteed but allow tourists to discover the beauty in the common and the surprise in the everyday.

Indian city dweller Samprati Pani draws on her walking practices as an anthropologist interested in the making of public places in the city. Through an ethnography of walking practices performed in the bazaars of Delhi, the talk will illustrate how walking in the bazaar, even for a solitary walker, is a social activity because its rhythm and pace is continuously modulated in relation to others and the materiality of the place.
