Huron County is inviting everyone to come out to create Communitrees. A Communitree (i.e. community tree) is a "public work of art that uses a living tree as the blank canvas." Intrigued? Learn more by reading this article posted on the huroncounty.ca website.Watch for locations of these Communitrees to be posted on the Culture Days Celebration Schedule.
Huron County has also been hosting public info sessions about the Communitrees project. The next ones are:
- GODERICH – Tuesday, August 10th at 7 PM (Goderich Library, 52 Montreal Street)
- CLINTON – Wednesday, August 11th at 7 PM (REACH Centre, 169 Beech Street)
- EXETER – Thursday, August 12th at 7 PM (Exeter Library, 330 Main Street)
If for any reason you would rather not participate in the making of these Communitrees, maybe you'd like to play the role of critic: During Culture Days (September 24 - 26), a viewer's choice contest will take place. Go out for an excursion, check out the array of Communitrees and vote. Prizes will be won.
Don't worry, no trees are to be harmed in the making. All handiwork or enhancements to Communitrees are required to be easily removed at the end of Culture Days.
Kudos to the local Culture Days working group in Huron County, made up of representatives from The Blythe Festival, Bayfield Town Hall, Huron County Library, and the Heritage and Culture Partnership. This is a great Culture Days activity!
