Urban Tree Festival 2020
We had 7 practicing creatives produce artistic responses to the image and story of our 350 year old mulberry tree in the #HogarthsMulberry showcase on social media. The work will shortly be available to view all in one place on our past events and exhibitions page. Do keep sharing your work using the hashtag #HogarthsMulberry, we’d love to see what you create!
The ‘Hogarth’s and Chiswick’s other mulberries’ talk by mulberry expert Dr Peter Coles took 44 participants on a ‘virtual walk’ through Chiswick with expert insight into the mulberry trees we can see around Chiswick. In addition to many local residents, we were additionally pleased to welcome ‘virtual visitors’ from farther afield including Canada, Scotland and Leicester.
We are looking forward to Urban Tree Festival 2021 and hoping that activities next year can take place in our garden, which is newly replanted thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
