Green Mountain 2017

You are invited to participate in the Johannesburg / Knysna / Plettenberg Bay Green Mountain 2017 Arts, Land art and Eco-Encounter

 

Map growth with us

Join us in welcoming growth and celebrating the essence and mystery called Life with images and pictures, poems, songs and dances, constellations of leaves, twigs, branches, sand and roots, whispering the incantations of ancient rhythms, pattern and formations; investigating, exploring and imprinting templates of a living architecture; intuiting innate patterns, marvelling at intelligent design and staring in wonder at the precision of beauty.

We embrace the belief that the glaring exposure and multi-layered existential questions, brought onto our doorstep by this vast, natural uprootment of the fire, is potentially whispering jewels of wisdom, celebrating the ordinary, ‘mundane’ odysseys of our daily lives : a modern-day odyssey. The potential opportunity to re-create life on such a vast scale, calls on the realm of imagination, to see new, deep and wide ….. consequently paying homage to the muses who inspire and enlighten us to create and to envision the New, daily.

All is invited to participate : share, follow, witness and converse with us, investigate, question and create over the next 10 months the varigated flow of life, the architecture of soul- and body spaces, an odyssey of habitation and re-habilitation, culminating on 7 June 2018 in an collaborative, communal response.

The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy, and after all our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it and to foster its renewal is our only hope.
–Wendell Berry

All bold ones, courageouss creators and dreamers, hearts filled with hope, (and ones trembling with fear, welcome too!), …..bring your paintings, your scupltures, oracles and wisdom-words, your poems and stories, songs and dances, your eyes that see and fingers that weave, carve and knead…. telling the tale of the everyday inner and outer journey of growing life – yours and mine.

If you feel inspired to join, please contact Ronel on either ronel@greenmountain.org.za or 084 564 5641 for more information, questions, suggestions and logistical arrangements.

Humble and warm wishes and we look forward to sharing this unique GreenMountain 2017 journey with you!
