A STILL LIFE OF TREES
A Tree Walk/Talk-About in town
You are invited to participate in a walk/talk-about to better understand the connections between place, people and nature in Stellenbosch. Our project draws attention to selected dying and dead trees that have witnessed our combined ecological and human histories. Each walker/talker will receive a field bag and sketching/writing book. Please bring pencils, pens or other chosen materials, a water bottle, walking shoes and a sun hat.

Meet the Artists:
A collaborative initiative led by Taryn Millar, Sarah Cairns and Aarti Shah who use artistic processes to reconsider relationships between nature, people and place. For the Social Impact Art Prize, A Still Life will be working with artist Hannelie Coetzee to realise the second iteration of a project that considers the inner life of dead and dying trees.
A Still Life is a trans-disciplinary practice centred on trees, that engages community members, scientists, historians, city officials and arborists in its research.
The project began its first chapter in 2021 in Cape Town. Chapter two is based in Johannesburg in collaboration with Hannelie Coetzee, By curating transformative art experiences with and through the natural environment, A Still Life aims to build empathy that translates into action.
