artist on the run
I have been accepted today onto the self-employment scheme run by NEA and looking for ways to enhance my art practice by promoting an existing tree planting project that I love to support.
I was very concerned about the random burning of forests over the last two years, having been a volunteer planting trees in a South American cloud forest, I wanted to support the challenge set by team trees to plant 2 million trees and had fun encouraging support on the live u tube feed.
“One year ago team trees were challenged on U tube to raise 2 million dollars to help arbor day foundation plant 2 million trees so they formed a u tube team, and took over the internet they scored a win for the planet. #teamtrees Plant with them and track the progress!”
This year they are at it again planting the trees globally by supporting arborday.org
The challenge this year plant 20 million trees
In the UK they are working with the woodland trust
My idea is simple I am going to print #teamtrees labels and stencils
Place them around London where appropriate and allowed, anyone interested just hash tags #teamtrees.
