International Encounters Girona-Olot-Vic, Catalonia Spain July 5-9, 2022
The international meeting “Walking Art and Relational Geographies” aims to set a dialogue between theory and practice in which walking becomes an instrument of territorial connection, a mapping tool and a format of creative expression. A meeting point for debate, experience and reflection, ” Walking Art and Relational Geographies” will focus mainly on the analysis of the increasingly mediated relationship between people and geographies.
The Encounters are conceived together as simultaneously an academic conference and an artistic event; in the format of an itinerant meeting between the cities of Girona, Olot and Vic, with a symbolically explicit transversal component.
The meeting also has, like the previous encounters organized in Greece and Portugal, both academic and artistic axes. Academically it is conference developed with lectures and presentations. Artistically, actions, workshops and performances intersect the talks and walks. This allows an interdisciplinary dialogue that helps to break down academic and artistic paradigms and to free up initiatives for a two-way communicative and fertilizing approach.
The calls for participation are now open. They are aimed at thinkers, eco-territorial agents and activists, geographers, artists and creators related to walking in the creative, educational, artistic and eco-territorial aspects.
Theoretical papers, communications and artistic proposals (actions, workshops, walks etc.) can be presented.
We also include the format of audio papers and audio walks for remote participation, along with a limited number of off-event online discussions in September in the framework of Sound Walk September.
Open call for walks, walkshops, performances, art projects and papers, including as well audio papers and audio walks.
Audio papers bring together audio, performance, and text in a one format. A new form of audio walk which allows you to listen to a critical text while walking and interacting with the environment.
Deadline May 1st (300 word abstract).
