Come Home — An Ancient Forest Lullaby

Come Home – an ancient forest lullaby is the collaborative work of passionate artist activists across Canada.  Funded by the Conservation Council of New Brunswick, as part of our From Harm to Harmony community arts project co-facilitated by musician/writer Laura Barron and environmental artist, Juliana Bedoya, this lullaby resulted from several online sessions hosted in late 2021.  
The lullaby represents the point of view of the Ancient Mother trees, themselves, as they guide Earth’s children (all humans) through the wise words they wish to share about protecting them.  The project was inspired by Laura’s work through Carnegie Hall’s Lullaby Project, where her own non-profit, Instruments of Change, has been engaging with single mothers escaping violence, to co-create original songs for their babies that foster bonding and healing.
