All the Trees encourages participants to take a closer look at the trees around the Community Centre and Jericho Park. Thirty trees are tagged with an email address and an invitation to send a personal email to the tree. A group of poets, horticulturalists, historians and artists will be responding to the emails on their behalf.
Artist-in-residence, Holly Schmidt, was inspired to create this project after reading about a City of Melbourne tree mapping project that invited residents to report tree damage or disease by email. Instead people started sending personal notes to the trees expressing their admiration. What do people have to say to the trees of Vancouver? Anonymous responses will be posted through out the project - July to December, 2018.
All the Trees acknowledges the support of the Artist in Communities program through the Vancouver Park Board, West Point Grey Community Centre, the Jericho Stewardship Group, and Queen Mary Elementary School.
