The Giving Tree

This tree was made for #LETS MEETRO, a social project in the metro stations of Brussels, organised by Citizenne.

Every day thousands of people take the metro, each with their own story. #lets meetro captures the hopes, dreams, fears and passions of these travellers and shares them on the spot and online.

The challenge was to make a tree from recycled materials, lightweight, easy to transport but also strong and prominently present in the stations.

The activity shown in the pictures is called “Po├Ęte public”. After a short conversation and a juggling with words, the passer-by gets his or her poem. A copy is hung in the giving tree in the station, to be read by other curious travellers. It is about life as it is … only more poetic.
