The International Image Festival is an event of electronic arts and digital culture organized by the Visual Design Department at the Universidad de Caldas in Colombia since 1997. This year, the Festival will host ISEA2017, one of the most important symposiums on Electronic Art in the world, and for the first time will be held in a Latin American country.

At the same time, the Festival will be part of selected cultural events in the ’Crusade Season France-Colombia’ initiative, led by the French Institute and the Ministry of Culture.

The Soundwalk as an Art Form: Building Bridges to Peace presents an overview of the history of the participatory walk as an art form, including the soundwalk and its key concepts and development, while providing a theoretical tool box for creating ones own soundwalk as a transformative art experience. When leading a soundwalk we are combining the perceiver and the perceived, the participant and observer in an improvisatory way in the physical environment. Soundwalks guide us on a path primarily created by our ears. Sound artist, Andrea Williams, will lead a 45-minute soundwalk at Recinto del Pensamiento, located in Kilometro 11 Vía al Magdalena, an open space consisting of flower gardens, urban structures, and a small square for events. The park has been created to "eliminate segregation and contributing to healthy living". The soundwalk will focus on: How can we be in peace and harmony with our surroundings? What does peace sound like? How do we feel connected non-verbally to other beings? How can observing other species bring us a sense of peace that we can translate to being at peace with fellow human beings? Following the walk, there will be 45 minutes of break-out groups for discussion posted on the URL.
