Treehouses of Resistance is Jaime Iglehart’s research-based
“educational wallpaper project” which commemorates the history of forest occupations, tree-sits, and squatted forest communities around the world. A mural, a month in the making, painted on the walls of Koz Collective, commemorates these actions of resistance.
From 7:30pm – 12:00 we’ll hang out, drink some drinks, eat some snacks, and at 9:00pm Jaime will give a short presentation on what she’s learned about the many amazing squatted forest communities and occupations in the far reaches of the world.
We’ll be offering $2 beers, mixed drinks, and fresh juices! 100% of the profits will go directly to the Tar Sands Blockade, a Keystone XL Pipeline resistance group.
Treehouses of Resistance is created for, and inspired by, the brand new artist residency program “Treehouse,” at Koz Collective in Brooklyn. Koz is a residential space whose members have chosen to host one artist per month in an indoor treehouse. Jaime is Koz’s second artist-in-residence.
