Two days of meetings await you at the Grain hall of Quettehoufor a festival committed to nature, climate, and populations. On the program: films, exhibitions and meetings. And the meeting not to be missed this year is that of the courageous Julie Labroue from Cherbourg (Sleeve).
During his trip to nepal, in February and March 2022, the young woman filled her travel diary with watercolors. “My notebook took me from Kathmandu and its valley, to my meditation retreat Vipassana, going through a trekking at the foot of the Annapurnas and as far as Lumbini in the south of the country, the birthplace of the Buddha. When she returned, she continued to transcribe the atmosphere and colors of Nepal into new works. She will exhibit everything during the festival!
Living with Australian Aborigines
On Sunday, November 20, at 3:15 p.m., Julie will talk to you about her years spent in Australia and especially the 2 months she spent every day contact with Australian Aborigines (you can find the story of his adventure on his blog ).
“I wanted to talk about this fascinating people at the antipodes of our society. I worked 2 months in a “Road house” at the gates of the desert. It was a campsite, gas station, café-grocery store. I served aboriginal families with coffee, gasoline, and among my colleagues was a couple of painters from the Arrernte people with whom I was able to talk at length. »
Julie will show some photos of this experience, but what she especially wants is to share what they told her…
Traveler at heart
For her first trip, Julie was 8 years old. A surprise from his parents on the morning of his birthday and off they went to London by ferry.
“I remember the astonishment, as a child, to hear an unknown language spoken, and to discover that other people lived differently. As a teenager, during school holidays, I had the chance to travel to many countries. Then I discovered the film L’Auberge Espagnole, which later pushed me to realize my dream of doing a one-year Erasmus. »
The next trip?
This old stylist-graphic designertrained in natural textile dyeing, is already dreaming about the following, and this trip she is planning for 2024: Japan. She wants to discover Japanese crafts on the spot: indigo and shibori dyeing, Saori weaving, Raku ceramics, and has even started learning the language. And to meet her, go to Festival of travel!
