Ingrid Schöfmann & Heather Greig - organisers extraordinaire

Ingrid Schöfmann is a self-employed, self-driven problem solver, Project Manager and overall magician. She co-owns CNC RoutDesign, providing services to the exhibitions, signage and marketing industries. Her company kindly sponsored and manufactured directional signage for the Snake Eagle Thinking Path. A no-nonsense person, she gets things done rather than talking about it - which why this bio is so short!

“I got involved in this project out of a deep love of the Karoo and to create awareness against the intention to frack the fragile environment of the Karoo. As labourer, motivator, sweeper and provider of moral support, this project has left me with a great sense of personal achievement.”

Heather Greig is a gallerist, event designer, entrepreneur and overall powerhouse who assisted in fundraising, organising events and marketing for the Snake Eagle Thinking Path project. A great networker, Heather has, unfortunately for Site_Specific, now moved to England. We really miss her unique talents and flair.

"I am passionate about the Karoo environment and I believe it’s essential to draw attention to the threat fracking poses to this unique habitat. I also feel strongly about giving voice to ‘forgotten’ communities - our projects need also to be their projects. The Matjiesfontein community are the custodians of the Snake Eagle Thinking Path.”
