Networking high points
Annual meetings :
All the members of the network (French, British and Belgian) meet up every year in one of their localities (2010 – Fontainebleau, 2011 – northern France, 2012 – Edimbourg, 2013 – northern France, 2014 – Cévennes, 2015 – Bristol, 2016 – Fontainebleau).
These meetings are high points for the network; a time for exchanging notes on what we’ve been doing and ideas for future activities, and for boing beyond our common interest in Stevenson to share the experience of our different cultures and ways of living.
The European network association In the Footsteps of Robert Louis Stevenson was formally inaugurated on 16 November 2013 in Maroilles in northern France. Its objective is to promote the life and works of the writer. The Network has been accredited in 2015 as a “European Cultural Route of the Council of Europe”.
Stevenson Month :
Every November, the European network association In the Footsteps of Robert Louis Stevenson organises a programme of events related to the writer’s life and works.
Each of the network’s member organisations is involved in this joint endeavour, putting on exhibitions, talks, lectures and activities around a common theme. The primary aim is to help children and young people come to know more both about Robert Louis Stevenson and about the different localities that make up our network.
