Unveiling the FIGT Tree

29 Jun 2021 10:50 AM | Anonymous

As part of this year's conference closing ceremony, our members create a piece of community art in line with FIGT2021's theme, "Embracing and Bridging Differences".

As part of FIGT2021, artist and FIGT Member Camille Deniau facilitated a session to allow us to create our first ever piece of community art.  Under Camille’s guidance, attendees each created an element of the final piece; leaves, branches, or a part of the trunk. According to Camille, "Everybody did it in their own ways, expressing their own personality and what they wanted to contribute to the conference". She then brought the individual pieces together. "It was a massive puzzle," she explains. "I tried to link [each piece] wherever I could find those bridges". The final creation is the FIGT Tree, which we are displaying here for the first time.

We encourage you to zoom in or enlarge the FIGT Tree to see how the pieces connect.

To learn more about the story behind the FIGT Tree, please watch this short video conversation with Camille and Valérie Besanceney, our former Programs Director.
