Workshop Title: Listening to Dreams: ‘Transitioning between the I and Us’
We will be having a visual conversation, a metaphoric and image -based conversation.
Within the workshop participants will engage with a process called Social Dreaming, where we will share night time dreams, and free associations responding to the theme of ‘Transitioning between the I and Us’
The structure holds the ethos of democratizing learning and teaching. It begins to elaborate methods of coming to know. We return to a time when communities gathered to talk about their dreams, to create together, play together and dream together. It is also an experience of group based visual research.
Participants will have space to make images, journal and reflect before returning to the larger group to think about and create links and threads of what the social unconscious of the group is communicating. This process facilitates participants creative and collaborative abilities and potential.

This is an experiential workshop with a limit of 8 participants.
