For a moment…..

That you are a tree, a beautiful, magnificent tree with deep roots and soaring branches.

You live in a forest surrounded by other trees, birds, animals and lush plants.

On the inside, you are layered from a strong core unto your bark. Each year passing by you have grown a layer and became taller, wider and stronger.

If we could see inside that tree, we would be able to tell what those years have been like.

Now, we are inviting you to see those layers, this core, and to listen to them.

What do they have to say? What words of wisdom do they have to share?

Maybe you would you like to tell them something? What do you want to share with your inner tree?

Now write those words, this sentence on the paper we gave you and be ready to share it on the final artwork. You can write in English or any other languages.

Thank you.

Help us spread the word, share with your friends!

The tree is now full, thank you to all our participants. If you want to be updated on our upcoming participative Arts project, please fill out the form here.
