What does being a Londoner mean to you? Make a leaf and add your voice to our community tree sculptures. Help us grow our forest! Artist Jacqueline Demendeev created the trees in partnership with local organizations. Make a cloud for the LUSO tree and tell us what dreams you have for the future. Make a leaf for the Poet's tree and reflect on your memories of being from here. Make a heart for the PRIDE tree and tell us who is important to you. Or make a self portrait for the Faces of London tree. Watch the forest transform over the afternoon. All welcome.

Dundas Street between Ridout Street and Tablot Street is currently closed. Please walk/roll/bike/drive heading westbound on Queens Avenue to get to us!
