Lecture: Erik Dhont [SOLD OUT → LIVE STREAM]
© Jean-Pierre Gabriel, 2020
'A lifetime is too short to fully understand nature. Understanding comes gradually, through reading it, through encounters and personal experiences.' By focusing on a selection of projects, Erik Dhont offers new insights into garden art. Each design serves as a place of representation of certain values, a place of experimentation where human relationships thrive in their own time and space. A place that is passed on and changes shape. May we communicate to everyone the desire to plan, cultivate and care for a little piece of this world.
The physical event is sold out. Attend the lecture online on our facebook page (no account required!) on www.facebook.com/civabrussels/live
