About the Mother Tree Open Call for Art
MUSEA Intentional Creativity Museum is honored to be hosting the Mother Tree Exhibition in collaboration with TreeSisters International. We invited multimedia submissions of art that reflects women’s intimate connection with trees and the Divine Feminine and Mother energies which catalyzes and empowers women to protect and stand in union with our beloved global forests and one another.
This art call was juried by Musea’s team of CoCurators, with 50+ images chosen for inclusion in the Mother Tree Art Exhibition. This Art Call reflects our desire for a return to our place as the ‘Restorer Species’, collaborating with Earth in emergent, creative and regenerative ways, which reflect our respect, love, interconnection and reciprocity in action.
The Mother Tree Exhibit is inspired by MUSEA’s lineage and legacy of activism on behalf of women and girls and our precious home, the Earth. Co-Founders, Curator Shiloh Sophia and Jonathan McCloud as well as members of our Intentional Creativity Arts Guild, have been actively advocating for the health, wholeness, safety and freedom of women globally, attending the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women as panelists and advocates of this work. As an organization, we recognize that the status of women is interconnected with the status of our global forests, as women and ecosystems are often experiencing the same or similar harms inside of current structures.
Through this collaboration with TreeSisters Nonprofit, women are invited to rise up in creative self expression to artfully express their desire for the healing, wholeness and regeneration of our precious global forests, which in turn is also holding a powerful space for the healing and regeneration of women! We are in this together. Intricately interwoven.
TreeSisters is a social change and reforestation charity that places tropical forest restoration into everyone’s hands. Through individuals and businesses that give back to nature every month, TreeSisters has so far funded the planting of over 22 million trees across 12 locations in Brazil, Borneo, Cameroon, India, Kenya, Mozambique, Madagascar, Nepal and West Papua. They fund a diverse portfolio of tropical reforestation projects that are ethical, community-led, expand natural forest cover, and aim to avoid further deforestation. Their projects support local communities and improve livelihoods, protect critically endangered species, and focus on gender parity and the participation of women.
TreeSisters actively encourage the cultural shift required to grow from a consumer to a restorative culture and encourage feminine leadership by providing resources, experiences and communities that inspire personal and collective action on behalf of the trees.
This creative collaboration between MUSEA Intentional Creativity Museum and TreeSisters International reflects the shared and heartfelt desires of both organizations to stand for the protection, healing and regeneration of our global forests which contributes to the protection and wellbeing of all living beings.
We hope you will join us for this powerful Museum Show and celebration of regenerative art!
