KWIC (Kawartha World Issues Centre) wants to hear stories about the stumps left behind in the wake of the derecho storm of May 2022; stumps of trees that were important or dear to you. Stories are compiled and shared via KWIC’s Stump Stories.
“Stump Stories aims to make space for the ecological grief experienced by members of the Peterborough/Nogojiwanong community. By inviting personal sharing and reflection on the role of trees in our environment, we hope to destigmatize grief in general and promote collective responses to healing,” reads a statement from the project.
A first volume of community-collected strain stories is now available for viewing on the @kwic_ptbo Instagram page.
If you have a stump story to tell, send your story or poem, photos or drawings to [email protected] Stories may be edited for formatting and clarity.
