Urban Tree Festival 2021
Last year’s #HogarthsMulberry Showcase for Urban Tree Festival was a success, showcasing the works of many local creatives. This year we are focusing on the creative process and commissioning a piece by artist Rachael Kidd, whose work is about nature as a whole and how we fit within it. Her piece will be about our historic mulberry tree – the last living remnant from our garden’s origins as a 17th century orchard and the tree will remain healthy for more generations to come thanks to our National Lottery Heritage Fund grant.
Call for poetry! The artwork will be inspired by poems and creative writing submitted by our community. Rachael’s has never seen the tree in person so she will be seeing the tree through your words. Her process and the final artwork will be unveiled virtually during the Festival, 15 – 23 May.
If you’d like to submit a piece or learn more about how to participate, email Elizabeth.Bryan@Hounslow.gov.uk by 3 May 2021.
