Involvement in the Community
As a member of the community, Sylvia Rossouw tries to give back as much as she can. Her first exhibitions were held in her hometown in Western Cape, South Africa, to display her love for the area. Her work of art was on display at the Civic Center in 1994 at the KKNK Annual National Arts Festival. Following the International Green Architecture Conference in 2012, a solo show was featured in 2013. In 2014, she participated in a silent auction called Shhhhhh! as part of a larger group project. She also participated in a community-wide mural project at the library on Nelson Mandela Day. She was hired as a part-time instructor at the Cape Province University of Technology (CPUT) in architecture and design a year later. Since then, she has been an inspiration to students who aspire to be architects by serving as a mentor in 2018.
