Mission


RAISING AWARENESS THROUGH URBAN ART TO HELP AND PLANT TREES

"Potential immortality adds to the dignity of these guardians of time. Near them, we are all kids”. (*) » 

Francis Hallé

“The trees tell a millennial story. If we knew how to hear them ...”

David G. Haskell


Our Vision

🌳Trees are our essential life partners on Earth.

The scientific interests and advances of recent decades in the extraordinarily living world of trees show us that they are models of fertility, productivity, efficiency, caring and simplicity. They have crossed all time and they have a thousand-year-old story to tell.

Their intelligence opens new avenues for multiple solutions and concrete research projects to address the socio-economic and environmental challenges we face.

We believe that urban art is a strong and interactive communication vehicle to arouse the public's curiosity, awaken it and mobilize it to become a link to the intimate world of trees.

Our Mission

🌳Plant trees.

We wish to strengthen this new perspective on the interaction that humans can develop with these giant plants and raise public awareness through urban art, street art, art at the heart of the citizens' environment.

OUR MAIN OBJECTIVES

  • Mobilize the public around this interconnection with the tree.

  • Make future generations directly aware of the scientific realities related to trees in schools.

  • Replant urban micro-forests with children in their schools.

  • Support and federate the multiple actors* of the tree world, biologists, scientists, researchers, agroforestry workers, etc....

  • Preserve and regenerate forest ecosystems.

LOS ALMENDROS DE IBIZA: 555 ALMOND TREES PLANTED BETWEEN 2017 AND JANUARY 2019

🌳 3 "almond trees Sculpture" created for this project were exhibited in July 2017 on the port of Ibiza, in front of the communal house of Santa Eulalia and the Cultural Center of Jesús until 2019 and at the Vara del Rey in 2018. Viewed by about 270,000 people, all horizons sensitized.

🌳 The Smiley's works were donated by Sophie Stinglhamber to raise funds to finance and plant almond trees in Ibiza.

🌳 540,000 readers reached by the Diario de Ibiza press (of which a 1st page on October 9, 2018) and the Periódico de Ibiza.

🌳 This project raised awareness in record time and raised funds to replant hundreds of almond trees. It's done, it's a start. And every step count.

The project continues !

« LISTEN TO THE TREES, THEY HAVE SO MUCH TO TELL US! »


-save the date-

THE EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE FROM OCTOBER 21 TO 28, 2019 AT THE TERMINUS OF AVENUE LOUISE/AVENUE LEGRAND, 1050 & 1000 BRUSSELS.


OUR PROJECT:

The urban event "LISTEN TO THE TREES, THEY HAVE SO MUCH TO TELL US" will propose an urban art action where the tree will be highlighted on a large Brussels avenue. Its mission will be to raise artistic and scientific awareness among a wide audience of the importance of new codes to think and interact with the tree. We will invite the passer-by to better observe the trees, in a fun and unusual way. It is about (re)discovering their benefits and getting to know their "way and world" of intimate life. Files on request.


Our TEAM for this project "LISTEN TO THE TREES":

o Sophie Stinglhamber

Founder Leader of the NPO Sustainable Art (2017) – Author of the project.

As an artist and environmentalist, her work focuses on the memory that human evolution leaves and the consequences it has on the mineral, plant, animal and human worlds. To express this, she draws inspiration from artistic trends such as ephemeral art, land art, art and the environment, street art, immediate art, conceptual art, sustainable art.

The performances, the installations and the interactions have shown her the way to urban art for her current projects.

o Priscille Cazin

Founder of Zérolutions and co-founder and Director of Wood Wide Web – Co-author of the project "LISTEN TO THE TREES".

Priscille is an author, scriptwriter, director, journalist, producer and social and environmental entrepreneur. Themes related to nature and humanity have been at the heart of her work for several years. For 20 years she has been creating, developing and producing audiovisual / digital information and programs for various European media (radio, TV, WebTV). She also carries out media and field awareness campaigns aimed at a wide audience. Passionate about the popularization of science and the treatment of information through sound and image, Priscille creates empathic and collaborative communication tools that promote citizen participation and empowerment.

Wood Wide Web is a project of popularization and cross-media awareness on the urban forest of Brussels. Her goal is to enchant the public and to federate a community around the trees of the Brussels Capital Region and get them to discover initiatives and events that take place at their feet. 

This project proposes educational tools to enable people to explore Brussels as a forest: to (re) connect and dive into the environment.

Wood Wide Web works closely with the Scientific Community. This adventure mobilizes some 60 structures, associations, institutions, collective citizens, schools, etc. It is connected to many Belgian and European tree initiatives. The project is widely reported in the media. 

o Sophie Hasaerts

Strategy and curator for the project.

As an independent director of cultural projects, Sophie Hasaerts has worked for many years in the field of arts promotion, convinced of what artistic creation can bring as vitality to an urban community and what it can trigger out curiosity, openness and awareness. In so many ways and more than ever at this turning point already well underway towards the 21st century, the artists' message underlines and sustains the ecological question.

o Bénédicte Limauge

Project support

"Hands-on” attitude and multilingual (FR / UK / NL / SP), she regularly collaborates with Sophie Stinglhamber in her various projects, whether they are artistic or NPO ones. Bénédicte brings with her, an experience of more than 30 years in different multicultural environments and in various company structures whose red thread has been sales and administration management support. 

She moved to France to pursue a new professional project with her husband and is developing a freelance service for small business structures in need of assistance at national or international level on a specific and punctual freelance basis while continuing to support environmental and artistic projects that are important to her.
