Wearing Trees Art Project


Malatya Government kicked off a new art project last month. They described this project as “wearing trees art”. Previously, Uludag University students did the same project and got the audience’s attention at the campus. Same project is started recently at the Rumeli Hisari district. You can see some of these trees, which was already dressed by women, when you walk Istanbul’s most beautiful coastline, Rumeli Hisari.

This is a lovely project planning to make trees and our walking route more colorful and pretty, at the same time project aims to protect nature and trees. This is a very important global act, many examples can be seen in many countries including Turkey. Like I said before, attendees are mostly women and as you can see at the pictures, this “wearing” comes from knitting some clothes for trees.

Open your eyes and find the closest one to you.
