Discovering a city:
a whole new perspective.
Promenades Sonores is a series of audiowalks created in and around the city of Marseille by 30 different authors: artists, local shopkeepers, documentary makers. Our aim is to open up our city so you can explore pathways full of new sights, sounds and knowledge.
Whether you live in Marseille, or you’re a passerby from afar, there are several ways for you to join us:
Come and take a walk in real life (preferably) or come for a walk without leaving your seat (if you're genuinely too far away).
Or, support us by encouraging our efforts so we can help develop new walks and sustain existing ones.
Please do get in touch if you believe our aims cross paths, and that a collaboration could be possible in your area.
As you can see by watching this Google Story, the narrative is, above all, a shared one.
Among the wonderful constellation of people who walk the streets of Marseille to understand them, live them and share them, you might have come across the following people.
Take the time to browse their projects, or stop by and have a chat with them.
The entire team of Radio Grenouille
The members of the wheelbarrows collective
Zorah and the team at Gare Franche
Agnès from cooperative of Hotel Nord inhabitants
Dominique from the Höfn Association
Lionel from the Goelette des pirates
Samia from the Anchrage association
Francis, Maguy and Marcel from La Gorgée de Soleil and the Café de la gare in Saint-Antoine
To delve deeper into the issues and ideals of city walking – in terms of its value as social heritage and the notion of collective narrative as political practice - we recommend that you spend some time on www.Hoteldunord.coop and on GR2013
