Talk Tree to Me

Have you ever wondered what a Tree would say if you could ask it a question? Here’s your chance! Trees are important to a city. But there are lots of mixed feelings about trees in Detroit. This project seeks to open up this messy conversation, and tie it to place, memory, and the potential for transformation. Visit the Detroit Riverfront and Dequindre Cut throughout the month of September to interact with this live exhibit and ongoing conversation between Detroiters and trees. Part scavenger hunt and part inquiry, bring your phone and your opinions and #talktreetome this September. Learn more at TalkTreeToMe.com. This event is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is not required.

A closing event will take place September 30, 2020 from 4-7pm.
