Do you have a favorite tree or memories of trees from your childhood? Or maybe your experience is devoid of a specific tree story, but you still enjoy nature.  If so, come and share your story with an intergenerational group of tree huggers.  We are looking for a group of 10-12 people, so if you’re interested, please RSVP to

RE-PLACE-ing Philadelphia is a project of the Painted Bride Art Center built on the foundation of public dialogue and interaction, using art as a lens for viewing Philadelphia’s history and re-envisioning its future.


Linda Rich, MA is the Director of Education and Consultation at the Center for Nonviolence and Social Justice and at the Healing Hurt People program at Drexel University College of Medicine. She has over 25 years of experience in psychotherapy, research, health policy analysis and program planning, implementation and evaluation. Her previous work included the creation of a training/professional development component to a large-scale community based parenting network; guiding grant-request and funding processes; and establishing a standardized evaluation system for parenting education.  Ms. Rich holds a Master’s degree in Community Psychology from Temple University and a Bachelor’s degree from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.

Lisa Nelson-Haynes is associate director at Painted Bride Art Center. In addition to bringing world-class art and artists to Philadelphia from around the region, country and globe, Lisa enjoys developing engagement activities that take artists beyond the performance stage to further engage audiences in the art-making process. Lisa has been facilitating digital storytelling workshops for the Center for Digital Storytelling for more than six years and often refers to her role in the workshop process as a midwife, assisting workshop participants through the birthing process of creating their digital story.

Re-PLACE-ing Philadelphia has been supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
