Short Cut Wheat District

Tour: 25 / 03 / 2017
Location: Tarwewijk

Together with a group of local residents and many others, Short Cut Tarwewijk is being organized again this year. The organizers want to turn the project into an annual ritual. The line through Tarwewijk will be redrawn every year, as a result of which new locations will be visited and new contacts will be made. By anchoring the event more in the neighborhood, the people behind Short Cut Tarwewijk together want to make possible what is seen as impossible: "creating and keeping a monumental, collectively supported place for the imagination".

The walk starts at 25 March at 14 hours on the corner of Mijnsherenlaan and Dordtselaan and ends at Pleinweg. The walk takes approximately 40 minutes. Children are also welcome. After the walk there is cake and coffee for everyone. You can register via Pauline Schreurs, schreurs.pauline@gmail.com
