Trading Up For TREES
February 9 – May 4, 2022
‘ Trading Up For Trees’ is a novel fundraising activity based on the famous example of Montreal teen Kyle MacDonald. In 2006, in 14 trades, he  traded up a red paperclip for a house in Saskatchewan.
(See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_red_paperclip)
Funds raised from ‘Trading Up For Trees’ will compensate local actors, musicians, technicians, set builders etc. involved in the production of ‘whY!’, a theatrical performance playing at the Ottawa Fringe Festival, June 16-26, 2022.
Through song, poetry, and dialogue ‘whY!’ tells a story about disconnection from our environmental roots. It’s a call for everyone to be aware. It’s an invitation to action.

   Ottawa Fringe Festival, June 16-June 26
The ‘whY!’ Fringe Festival production is the brainchild of a group of Ottawa residents. Through song, poetry and dialogue it tells the story of opposition to the planned destruction of 750 irreplaceable canopy trees, 53 acres of public park land, countless creatures and wildlife habitats at Queen Juliana Park at the Central Experimental Farm in the heart of Ottawa. All environmental protections, accessibility regulations and traffic congestion issues were bypassed to allow construction of an inaccessible mega-hospital and parking lot for over 3,100 cars on national heritage land in the heart of Ottawa. The first step in the proposed plan is the  construction of an airport sized parking garage for 2,325 vehicles beside Dow’s Lake.  Other, more appropriate hospital sites were available and were approved prior to the arbitrary, unjustified announcement of the current plan. To learn more about this unacceptable plan please see the Reimagine Ottawa website at www.reimagineottawa.ca
