At this station you will take part in creating a collective mural while exploring questions of home and identity, through written and visual conversation.
Participants will engage in conversation about home and identity through written and visual representation while taking part in creating a final visual piece.
Have a blank paper with trees drawn on it. Have the essential questions on the wall/tree for people to respond to. Participants will use markers and paint to draw and write answers to the questions, as well as respond to others.
Why a tree?
The tree idea comes from a story our classmate told us about a tree from her childhood home acting as a witness to her life. Trees are powerful in many cultures as gathering places, as spaces to discuss legal matters, as places to pass on oral history. In addition, trees act as a metaphor for us as individuals growing roots and help us widen our concepts and thoughts of “home”.
