Six steps towards art between Samson and Lesse
Call for projects for the villages of Thon-Samson and Mozet
Within the framework of the project “Six steps to art between Samson and Lesse”, call for projects for contemporary artworks for the villages of Thon-Samson and Mozet.
Projects must be submitted by 05 April at the latest to firstname.lastname@example.org and by post using the attached form.
The aim of the project “Six steps towards Art between Samson and Lesse” is to create an “Art Trail” between 6 villages of the network “The Most Beautiful Villages of Wallonia”: Thon-Samson (Andenne), Mozet (Gesves), Crupet (Assesse), Falaën (Onhaye), Sosoye (Anhée) and Celles (Houyet)
A step is both an entrance and a passage, but also a movement, a step, a footprint. The step is a meeting between the tradition of our villages and the cultural approach of contemporary art.
“Art is a step from nature to infinity” – Khalil Gibran
The Samson and the Lesse, tributary rivers of the right bank of the Meuse, lick the edges of these 6 Beautiful Villages and lull the visitors with their gentle meanders.
The contemporary works refer to the character and essence of the village in which they are located. They are based on the theme of the environment and are made from natural materials: wood, stone, earth, metal, etc.
The association Les Plus Beaux Villages de Wallonie (The Most Beautiful Villages of Wallonia) oversees a network of 31 villages, bearers of a strong territorial identity and reflecting traditional architecture. It is committed to promoting the rural, cultural and natural heritage of Wallonia and is a part of the development of local and responsible tourism.
