The walking practice can be acknowledged as an act of touching and listening to the diverse shapes and stories of a territory. The more you walk into a place, the more you become aware of its diverse geographies, characteristics and traits. The more you walk into a landscape, the more you recognize, absorb and understand its stories and narratives.
The less a place is walkable, the more it becomes unknown, distant and hostile. This panel will focus on the different relationships that walking has with places and landscapes. What do the walking practices unveil and expose about the environment? What does walking reveal about the inner layers of a landscape? What hidden dimensions of a landscape -urban or rural- can walking let emerge? Can walking heal the numerous, but sometimes invisible, wounds of a territory?
Artists and researchers will discuss how walking practices can establish deep and complex relationships in/from/to and with the territory.
