The world is at the end of the road

We’re already familiar with the landscapes of the lyrical valley.

It is “here” – always here, looking over there. We are immersed in it, and to truly see it, all we need to do is look at it differently.

A few days before the festival, on city and station walls in French-speaking Switzerland, windows will be opened up onto the world.

You’ll recognise the streets – captured with poetic metaphor – that will instantly whisk you away.

This is an “invitation to travel”, to look at everyday life with fresh eyes through the power of poetry.
