 Sideways expedition: walk along from Monday to Thursday!

Artists and audience venture into the Belgian landscape during a 334 kilometre trip on foot. During 4 weeks, from Monday to Thursday, everybody is welcome to join a stretch of the itinerary, ranging from 7 to 35 kilometres a day. Details on the place and hour of departure for each walking day will follow soon on this webpage. It's free and walkers are invited to bring their own picnic and to make arrangements for their overnight stay between different walking days. Information on camping-grounds and lodging can be found on touristic webpages of the municipalities the journey moves through. A mobile laboratory for participating artists, the trek is conceived as an open-ended process of coming-into-being, of distraction and evocation, holiday and research, adventure and experimental praxis. A meeting ground for artists, locals, friends and passers-by.
