What you'll do
The activity is about walking and city perception throw sketching. We start the day around a table, having a nice cup of coffee and picking drawing material. The walk will run from downtown to the outskirts of the city, avoiding areas that have already been excessively considered in tour guides and blogs. You will be presented with unknown realities, with stops for visiting unusual points of interest. Public transport can be used eventually in order to arrive at specific places. We will end the day at a place where we can have lunch and relax.
I'm an architect and visual artist researching the relationship between longs walks and drawing. I have been organizing walking projects crossing São Paulo by for several years, with astonishing results. In 2015 I was awarded with ArtRio Prize, that made possible to expand experiences to cities like Rio, Paris and to accomplish a long-term project connecting Prague and Zurich by foot. I have a special interest in binding and artist books, so I can produce specific notebooks for the expeditions. Some of them were the base for etchings the were exhibited in São Paulo, France and, Switzerland.

Where you'll be
This activity may be taken as an urban expedition and not as a guided tour. Route information is not accessible in order to create a stimulating feeling of not knowing where we are going, that will possibly reflect at the sketching process. The main point is that all parts of the city can be interesting, deppending on the way ou look at it.
