1 of 4 Auvillar Arts Workshops at VCCA-France: Writing and Pilgrimage

Auvillar, France is a centuries-old stopping place on one of the four major routes for pilgrims on the Chemin de St. Jacques to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. It is home to beautiful, sacred spaces - such as the Church of St. Peter and the nearby ruins of the Chapel of St. Catherine on the bank of the Garonne River - as well as VCCA's beautiful studio center, Le Moulin à Nef.

Led by VCCA Fellow Lisa Schamess, author of Borrowed Light, the Writing and Pilgrimage workshop is built on the contemplative practice of walking. Participants will write together and separately discovering and sharing memories, values and spiritual touchstones. Writers of all levels of experience and physical ability are welcome. Writing and Pilgrimage takes place July 10 -17. To learn more, including information about the partial work-study scholarship, click here.
