IMMA invites you to help us make our seasonal Christmas tree in the courtyard extra special this year. Taking inspiration from the ancient Irish custom of the Rag Tree, The People’s Tree merges festive glamour with folklore. Get creative this Christmas by writing or embroidering your wish on a ribbon or a rag. Make one for relatives (young and old), friends, family abroad or even encourage them to make their own. Check out our special Explorer at Home: Ribbons & Rags project here. Send them to us and IMMA staff will tie them to a dedicated section on our enormous 35ft tree.

Let’s share our wishes, hopes, memories and thoughts in IMMA’s iconic public space to create a symbolic collective gesture at this exceptional time in our lives.

Submit Your Wish Online

Send us your wish here and we’ll write it onto a ribbon or a rag for you and place it on The People’s Tree

    Drop off your completed ribbon or rag to our bespoke Ribbons & Rags post box, located beside the tree in IMMA’s Courtyard. IMMA staff will tie them to the Christmas Tree.
