An artistic tour on foot, in rural areas

Learning to slow down

"La Marche des Philosophes" (The Philosophers’ walk) takes place in GAUME, throughout sceneries and valleys, local associations, markets, gardeners, seamstresses, dressed up cyclists, enthusiastic peasant women,….

It is A TRAVELLING ADVENTURE, a meeting in a rural area and in the public space, so we can have an artistic proposal adapted to each place.

A project on its journey

In 2016 the art company ‘les Chemins de terre’ developed the Philosophers’ walk in Gaume. The next year the Festival of Chassepierre and the CEC Tribal Souk joined to suggest a second edition of the venue.

Since then, each year, the two associations have called for new artists to get involved in a new Walk.

This project is intended to grow and to welcome new organisers who would take it to the streets and roads of their own region. To those who are interested, here are the shared principles of the project.
