Event description
Third walking conference of the Metropolitan Trails Academy Tour 2020 in Milano (IT)

About this Event

Following our exhibit and our national conference at the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations (Mucem), we are happy to announce the creation of the Metropolitan Trails Academy project (co-funded by the erasmus+ programme of the european union).

Founded by a network of partners from Athens(GR), Paris(FR), Marseille(FR), Köln(DE) and Milano (IT), the Metropolitan Trails Academy will launch in Spring 2020 a brand new training course in those 5 European cities.

----------

• You are an architect, landscaper or town planner and you want to improve your fieldwork experiences but you always miss time and tools to do it...

• You are a member of a hiking group and you would like to learn about architecture and town planning, and now opportunities to apprehend those fields by walking...

• You are unemployed and you love your town. You are curious about geography, urban environnement issues, and would love to run something but don't know where to start...

• You work in the educational field, with kids or adults, and you are enthusiast about popular education projects and fieldwork but easily get lost without a GPS.

• You are an artist and you are interested in walking artist projects but you feel like missing tools and tricks

• You are already involved in projects that have a link with urban walking (such as Jane's walks), urban writing, urban sketching, urban agriculture... and want to learn about metropolitan trails because you feel it could bring you and your project a bit further,

--------

Please register, and join us, for this third walking Conference in Milano with the "Sentieri Metropolitani" team. "Sentieri Metropolitani" are a not just trails to walk but also a new way of looking at the city, an editorial platform to tell new stories.

We are going to present to you the outputs of the Metropolitan Trails Academy (charter, guide and MOOC) and will address the issue of the production of narratives along the metropolitan trails.

Metropolises attract as much as they are places of segregation. Improving the living conditions of excluded people also involves valuing stories other than the dominant ones. Because they address the question of storytelling from the field, metropolitan trails are always, in fact, counter-narratives.
