This activity focuses on puppetry and memories and experiences of plants in the region around the rural village of Barrydale, South Africa.

Barrydale is an area where intensive agriculture has had a significant impact on the lives of the inhabitants, who in the precolonial era lived in a distinctly different relationship to their environment.

The team involved in the puppetry workshops and the plant-oriented photo-voice activities will use a digital platform to explore the meanings generated through enactments of the human/plant/animal complex. as we consider how the arts can predispose us all to a more responsible and sustainable mode of being.

Format: Zoom-Arts production and Q&A session (2 hours)

Upon registration, you will receive the link to the Zoom-session.
