In the spring of 2019 we had some beautiful hikes - you can read about them and see beautiful pictures below:
INVITATION to "Hiking as a dissemination" - three hikes in April 2019

We invite professional groups and individuals out on the moor and in the forest, on a hike where sensations and experiences become the basis for inspiration and idea development.
The pilot project "Hiking as communication" is aimed both at individuals who want to experience a narrative walk, and at several professional groups: teachers and educators, narrators and communicators, educators, preventers and others who work with socially disadvantaged and vulnerable people.

The walks are organized to reflect on what happens to us humans when we stay, move and work in wild nature far from cities and institutions, and what happens when nature experiences are conveyed with cultural expressions such as music, stories, crafts , visual art etc.
Reflections and conversations along the way, and short workshops included as "pockets" in the hike, must result in a catalog of ideas and activities that the individual can use in their daily work. Read more below.

"The most difficult step of the journey is that over the doorstep" (old saying)

In the spring of 2019, we will complete 3 long hikes with groups of 8 -12 participants.
We have received funding from the Cultural Laboratory's pool under Cultural Cooperation Mid - West and therefore we can offer participation in "Hiking as a dissemination" for a total of DKK 250 per participant.
The price is incl. catering throughout the hike and materials.
See practical details below. And finally contact Ingrid on 22 17 26 17 or if there are questions about the presentation.

The three hikes in April 2019 build on experiences from two hikes in the autumn of 2018.

Day course:

We meet in the parking lot at Lystbækgård at 8.00

The hike begins and we hike 8 - 10 km during the day - with many stops, time to rest and for various activities and stories.
We cook our food over a campfire.

Along the way, we will take breaks at fairy tales, and we will meet people who live on the moor or in the forest and who can tell important stories.
We have to work with different materials along the way, with exercises that sharpen attention and calm and with registering nature.

We end our walk in "The Yellow House" Lystbækhus Refugium, where we get a cup of dusk coffee, while we sum up the day and gather ideas and thoughts.
We prepare a single evening meal on the wood stove and eat together before we go home.


Practical clothes and footwear for all kinds of weather are a prerequisite for a good hike.

We send out program to the participants with more details.
