You are invited to take part in the next School of Dreams Imagination Workshop, on a humble little tinny dreamboat on the river, on Bundjalung Country, Northern Rivers next week on either Saturday 27 November or Sunday 28 November. These are single workshops, you only need to attend on one of these dates. Exact location TBA, it will depend on numbers.
In this intimate workshop we will look at dreaming as storytelling practice, pulling symbols and narratives from our unconscious, and dreaming with nature — documenting unconscious and conscious moments with water, and navigating colonial story arcs held in these spaces. There will be an hour or so at the end for informal dream sharing, optional swimming and communing with the river.
There is a publication component to this special workshop. The poems / reflections / dreams birthed from this workshop will be published in a special dream journal on the Community Dream Project website. You are encouraged to document your time on the tinny through photography, writing and audio, and reflect on your dream practice after our time together. Publication will take place three weeks following the workshops, and Manisha Anjali will provide gentle editorial guidance throughout this time.
There is a focus on writing, but the workshop is open to artists and non-artists working in any field or discipline. Think of writing as a blueprint for artmaking and life.
The workshop is $65 per person. You will need to bring your own writing materials, hat, sunscreen, water and swimmers (optional). There will be snacks on board, but if you would like something more substantial, feel free to bring a packed lunch. Location will either be on the Tweed or Brunswick River, and will be determined by boat availability and number of people interested.
In the event of rain, the workshop will be cancelled.
This workshop is held by Community Dream Project, a research and documentation platform for dreams visions and hallucinations. www.communitydream.org.
