Talking to trees is a local walk around some beautiful trees in suburban Holt in the Australian Capital Territory. These trees silently watch our daily comings and goings and we often do not notice them quietly supporting our life and work through their life giving oxygen and their shade on hot summers day.

The walk will be focused on themes of close observation, deep time, mindfulness and acknowledgement of the Sacred in nature.

In the southern hemisphere, 1 September is officially the first day of spring so this work also celebrates the changes of the seasons and the emergence of new growth.

The walk will be led by media artist Tracey Benson and supported by TransArts Alliance.
