Limoges la nuit : ballade géographique


As part of the GeoNight 2024, we’d like to offer an evening focusing on perceptions of Limoges urban space, but not only, at night. The evening will kick off with an evening tour through the streets of Limoges, where participants will be given a map to mark out, and asked to reflect on their feelings as they walk through different districts at night. The walk will be followed by a moment of exchange and discussion around the maps produced and the themes evoked by the use of urban space at night. As Limoges is located in a rural area, Esther Chevreau Damour’s presentation of her work on night-time in the Parc Naturel Régional Périgord-Limousin will also provide an opportunity to explore the differences in perception of night-time “in town” and “in the country”.
