Tours

Welcome.

Walking and talking. In combination, it is a proven way to gain understanding. The act of walking is a special acting-out of the place. It implies relations among differentiated positions. That is a fancy way of saying that talking is one way of making the world our own, and walking is another.

Every person is a mashup of what they let into their lives. Exploring different conversations and new spaces, gently guided by an overarching topic allows participants the freedom to wander off point, engage in their own imaginations, as well as bring context and meaning to older places, other peoples, and different times.
