RestFest

A festival to celebrate the art of giving and receiving.

Camping… Creating… Connecting. Fabulous for families. Awesome for Artists. Extraordinary for Experimental Explorers wishing to Expand their joyful journey.

Make. Build. Cook. Listen. Play. Learn. Teach. Walk. Breathe. Watch. Lie on your back and look at the Sky. We would love you to come and join us. Participation not Observation

Each one brings an offering and receives a bounty in return. Your offering involves sharing something that you are very good at and love doing. It could be sharing a skill, an experiential workshop, a yoga class, a performance, a lecture, a communal art making experience, a meal, a service.

Getting to The Rest
We are half way between Cape Town and Johannesberg (about 8 hours in either direction) half an hour off the N9 highway. We are an hour from Graaff-Reinet and 25 minutes from Nieu Bethesda.

To Drive: Email us for directions and check on the current state of the road and how your car will fare on the dirt roads.

Carpool to workshops: Join the event on the Facebook page and see who is keen to carpool. Email us to put you in touch with other drivers coming from your area.

Bus: Both Intercape and Translux stop in Graaff-Reinet. We will arrange to pick you up from the bus station and bring you to the farm directly or via a guest house (buses usually arrive at awkward times in the late or early hours.)
Email us to arrange this.

Fly: Catch a flight to Port Elizabeth and hire car to drive to the farm (this is a four hour drive).
Co-ordinate with other workshop participants who want to do the same. Email us for directions.
