INITIAL DISCOVERY (july 11-16)

•  Most of you will arrive a few days prior to our July 17 kickoff. As you know, this early arrival has been planned for jetlag recovery, to enjoy the Bastille Day celebrations as well as to prepare for the workshop. For the latter, please consider these two notions to be discussed in our workshop. How you think of them, find them, see them, etc:

1. SPACES: Choose a place in Paris (large or small, public or private, etc) that relates to a personal interest or to your reason for choosing Paris (you can improvise your discovery or refer to our Paris Life page for destinations)

2. THINGS: Identify a commonplace object/thing in the city that is small enough to fit in your pocket, and then collect at least five of them — Your choice of object can be random or symbolic.
