Saturday 15 June, 2-4pm
The tree walk will set out from Chisenhale Gallery at 2pm and end at The Pavilion Café.

A walk in Victoria Park looking at the diverse range of trees led by tree specialist Richard Lambert from 'Trees for Cities'. This event was inspired by  Mariana Castillo Deball's exhibtion What we caught we threw away, what we didn't catch we kept.

As part of the exhibition Deball presented a series of paper tree casts, made in Mexico, Costa Rica, Berlin and at Cove Park titled, Tree Traps. They were fabricated using a papier-mâché technique known as ‘paper squeeze’, pioneered by Alfred Maudslay, in his archaeological fieldwork at Mayan sites in Mexico and Guatemala.

Established in 1993, 'Trees for Cities' is an environmental charity working nationally and internationally with local people to improve their urban landscapes. Initiatives include landscaping projects and tree planting, as well as providing educational and training opportunities. They are currently in partnership with Tower Hamlets, to create three new interactive tree trails to be used across Victoria Park for the local community and all visitors to the park.
