S(tree)twork is a multi-year, public art project rooted in Philadelphia whose aim is to animate how we live among trees; how we perceive them; and how we imagine our future cohabitation.
S(tree)twork is curated by Marina McDougall on behalf of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, in partnership with the international art and design collective Futurefarmers. The project incorporates a series of public programs and workshops, public service announcements, and a built intervention at Awbury Arboretum -- together, this work will create a new dialogue around the vital role of trees in urban communities.
S(tree)twork combines various elements to create a full sensory experience:
S(tree)twork complements the city of Philadelphia’s ten-year strategic plan to forest the city; “to set forth new ways of working with residents to mitigate climate change and to prioritize equity in delivery, ensuring that the most vulnerable communities benefit from a healthy tree canopy.”
In addition to Awbury Arboretum, additional community sites and partnering organizations include East Park Revitalization Alliance, Nicetown-Tioga Community Development Center, and UC Green.
