Wishing Tree

The Wishing Tree is a public art project being created by The Empowerment Factory (TEF) in collaboration with children from Rhode Island to be installed in Pawtucket. TEF is encouraging members of the community to share their most cherished wishes for themselves, their friends and family, their community, and the world.  

If you would like to submit your wishes complete this google form:https://bit.ly/35erQ39

On October 18th, at the HLCE Scavenger Walk, TEF distributed Wishing Tree packets, which included a pen and colorful tags, upon which children and parents could write their wishes before hanging them on the Wishing  Tree growing in the Baldwin Elementary School garden. Some of the wishes are deeply emotional: to be together in this time of difficulty, to see loved friends and family, return to school, etc. Your wishes will be transferred onto a leaf on the Wishing Tree art installation. 

We need your colorful plastic caps from various sizes! They will be recycled into artwork. Drop them into the jug located outside our studio in the Hope Artiste Village.

“It’s impactful to see adults come together to service the youth in a developmentally appropriate and compassionate way. We hope to continue to engage with you and thank you for the ongoing resources. As a family we will be composing our tree of gratitude, influenced by your wish tree and hope to continue manifesting positivity throughout our community. We wish you all the best as you continue to creatively navigate the current barriers, keep up the good work!”  –Sara M. (Providence)

EL 18 de Octubre, en el HLCE Scavenger Walk, TEF distribuyó Wishing Tree packets, los cuales incluyeron una pluma y etiquetas de colores, en donde niños y padres de familia tuvieron la oportunidad de expresar sus deseos antes de colocarlos en el árbol de los deseos que crece en el jardín de la Escuela Primaria Elizabeth Baldwin. Algunos son muy emocionales: estar reunidos en este tiempo de dificultad, ver a seres amados como amigos y familiares, regresar a la escuela, etc. Tus deseos serán transferidos en hojas en la instalación del Wishing Tree. 

¡Necesitamos tapas de plástico de colores de varios tamaños! Se reciclarán en obras de arte. Colócalos en la jarra ubicada fuera de nuestro estudio en Hope Artiste Village.
