invites artists of all disciplines to join the ….

Artist’s Journey to the Children’s Forest
August 4, 5, & 6, 2012
Cortes Island, B.C.

“Who speaks for the trees, speaks for all of nature.”
Diane Beresford-Kroeger

Summer Greetings Cortes Artists!!!!!

The children of Cortes Island have a vision of protecting, in perpetuity, a large tract of ecologically significant forest lands that are presently owned by corporate interests.

The Forest Trust is pulling out the red carpet for visiting artists willing to support our children in their conservation vision; potluck dinners, billets with Island families and great camping on
Carrington Lagoon!

Come to Cortes and let the Children’s Forest inspire you to create a masterpiece… that will then be auctioned off in support of securing these forest lands for the children of Cortes.

The Forest Trust is hoping that a strong contingent of Cortes artists will join with the visiting artists to collectively offer their talents towards preservation of these lands. Support your local youth, meet visiting artists and let the Children’s Forest inspire you!!

The Forest Trust will be arranging billets for visiting artists and if you have an extra room or cabin and would like to welcome an artist to your home for that weekend, I would love to hear from you.

The Artist’s Journey… meet the children… meet the forests
and imagine… a forest in trust to the children!
