What Is It?
The American Express NIROX Winter Sculpture Fair will be hosted in May 2019. This annual event kicks off this year with something a little different this year. Come down to the sculpture park for the Long to Long: Little Sun Walk – a sunset walk into the NIROX hinterland followed by an ‘Asado’ dinner prepared by Che Argentinian Grill at NITA’s Kitchen. The walk takes you up to visit the hilltop installation of Standing Stone Circle by the celebrated British artist Richard Long. Following a drink at sunset, guests will walk back to NIROX for their dinner at NITA’s.
The Little Sun Walk is a collaboration between the Danish Embassy, The NIROX Foundation and Little Sun, a global project founded by internationally renowned artist Olafur Eliasson, which aims to make clean energy a reality worldwide. As dusk sets, the walk will be lit by Little Sun solar lights carried by schoolchildren. Participating schools include the National School for the Arts (NSA), the Matla School, Kromdraai, and schools serviced by the Columba Leadership Academy. Each adult ticket purchased for the event will provide one solar lamp to a student living with unreliable or no access to electricity. Using solar energy in remote areas means the children can read, study, and play safely after the sun has set.
Please note that good fitness and footwear is a requirement for the walk. It is recommend that all participants bring their own water bottle to stay hydrated.
