MAGASIN des horizons - Centre national d'arts et de cultures

Mariano Peccinetti, Secret lagoon.

The MAGASIN des Horizons has the pleasure of organizing an interdisciplinary event in the Grenoble area for the year 2018: the WALKS ACADEMY. The present call to walking reflects our commitment to fostering artistic creation and ensuring favorable conditions for a close encounter between artists, the Alpine region, and the local population.

There are as many ways of walking as there are walkers. The WALKS ACADEMY intends to explore them collectively and individually, roaming and wandering, in meditation and activism: We thus issue a call to walking!

A call for ideas about walking: Whether you are an explorer, a pilgrim, a migrant, or you walk for political, poetic, or sports-related reasons!

Walks may take all possible and imaginable forms:
–Informed by protest, “sensibility,” or poetry
–Downtown, in the suburbs or in the wild
–With shoes or barefoot, clothed or naked
–Slow walks, blind walks, nocturnal, athletic, political walks, pride marches, meditative, Afghan walking, to get lost, etc.
–Carnivals, philosophical walks, demonstrations, activist marches, silent walks, collective wandering…

Conditions of participation
No prerequisites.
This call is open to poets, writers, musicians, choreographiers, visual artists, illustrators, video artists, filmmakers, photographers, designers, stage directors, autodidacts, activists, dreamers... of all ages and from all walks of life.
