Do you have a favourite tree in Salford?

We are delighted to announce a further commission for our Rediscovering Salford programme, with Greater Manchester based artist Lowri Evans. Read more about Lowri and her work here, and find out about her call for the #SalfordTree inventory below.

Call for your favourite Salford Trees:

Do you have a favourite tree in Salford? Maybe it’s a tree you have climbed up or sheltered under. Maybe you planted it. Maybe it was already hundreds of years old when you were born…

As the leaves fall in Autumn 2021, artist Lowri Evans will be getting to know the trees and the people that love them around Salford as part of a new project for the University of Salford Art Collection in collaboration with Salford Museum & Art Gallery.

This project will pay attention to the cycles of nature, life death and life again, and how we can learn from trees and apply it to our personal lives. Seeing life decay and nourish new life again.

Share your favourite tree with us – post your images, stories or memories on social media using the hashtag #SalfordTrees  (on Twitter and Instagram) and tagging Lowri at @LowriEvans on Twitter or @thelowri on Instagram. (On Facebook, just post your image in our comments!)
