AN OAK TREE AND YOKO ONO’s IMAGINE PEACE TOWER
“I hope IMAGINE PEACE TOWER will give light to the strong wishes of World Peace from all corners of the planet and give encouragement, inspiration and a sense of solidarity in a world now filled with fear and confusion”
– Yoko Ono Lennon. October 2013.
The Oak Tree Project is DELIGHTED to have been invited to work with Yoko Ono Lennon and for the duration of the Glastonbury Festival 2014 to combine the efforts of IMAGINE PEACE TOWER and The Oak Tree Project.
IMAGINE PEACE TOWER is an outdoor work of art conceived by Yoko Ono in memory of John Lennon. It is situated on Viðey Island in Reykjavík, Iceland. It is a Tower of Light which emanates wisdom, healing and joy. It communicates awareness to the whole world that peace & love is what connects all lives on Earth. The artwork was dedicated to John by Yoko at its unveiling on October 9th 2007, John Lennon’s 67th birthday.

THE WISH TREES
Yoko tells the story –
“As a child in Japan, I used to go to a temple and write out a wish on a piece of thin paper and tie it around the branch of a tree. Trees in temple courtyards were always filled with people’s wish knots, which looked like white flowers blossoming from afar.”
Yoko Ono’s interactive artwork WISH TREE has been integral to many of her exhibitions around the world in museums and cultural centers where people have been invited to write their personal wishes for peace and tie them to a tree branch. Yoko has collected all the wishes – currently totaling over a million, which are all sent to IMAGINE PEACE TOWER.
During the Festival, you can come and write a wish and put it on our Wish Trees, which will be smaller trees around the base of The Ancient Oak in The Green Kids Field.
At the end of the Festival, all the wishes will be sent to IMAGINE PEACE TOWER in Iceland.
“Imagine all the people living life in peace”
– John Lennon
