The Charlottesville Intention Tree: Interactive Mural Project
The Charlottesville Intention Tree is a solitary dogwood tree amid a wide-open landscape ready to witness a declaration. The background of the tree (prepared prior to the event) is hand painted in silver gray on a blue canvas with dogwood blossoms representing the journey of life, with branches extending from a center trunk and roots, with spirals likened to Gustov Klimt’s “Tree of Life.”

This is a collaborative community project which allows participants to paint, write, and mark their intentions with what they are here to cause and create in the world. Creators will be able to contribute their words on dogwood blossoms or leaves, pre-cut from heavy paper, to be added to the branches. They may write intentions, prayers, blessings, gratitudes, or words and then adhere them to the mural.
The theme will be focused on how to live connected to each other in ways that are beneficial to our own well-being while being effective and useful to the world.

The Intention Tree Project is an invitation to engage in collaborative Intentional Creativity in answer to the question “What are you here to cause and create?” It provides a place to express an individual’s unique contribution, declare their intention, and be witnessed by adding their words to a blossom or leaf on the tree as a memorable art contribution to the community.

The efforts of a collaborative group changes the energy of the tree and those witnessing its growth, expressing the power of community intention. It remains as an example of how people can contribute individually and collectively, and have that energy move out into the world in ways that make change and growth possible.

The Intention Tree Mural is a local Charlottesville project that is one of many international projects organized by Journeywomen, Artists of the Intentional Creativity® Guild, originating from a TedX Berkley talk in 2017.

Additional notes: Trees are being painted on canvas in private classes, on community murals, and in collaborative projects in cities across the globe, connecting people in their own communities with the opportunity to write their own unique intentions, prayers, blessings, gratitudes and words for what each person wants to cause and create in their place of the world. Recently, prior to tragic events in the city of Christchurch NZ, a Grove of Trees was being painted by two of my colleagues. Tomorrow, March 23rd, thumbprints around the trees are being added to offer healing and support to the community there. https://www.facebook.com/TheGroveOfIntention/
