21Dreams is a Female Collective Dream Diary aiming to connect and empower women in the community, in particular survivors of sexual violence, by collecting their dreams and creating 21 empowering stories together.

This is an art project open to all women where participants will have the opportunity to be part of a collective work utilising their dreams as a connector tool.

When the Dream Diary will start and how will it work?

The Dream Diary will run from 1st to 21st of June 2021.

To participate you only need to download the 21Dreams app https://qrco.de/bc8R8P and be ready to start!

From 1st to 21st of June, participants will have access to a different image every day. Each image will be one of the masks or group sculptures previously co-created as part of the Masaya Workshops. These masks and sculptures aimed to explore the powers of the female collective. We will invite participants to look at this image before going to sleep and to record their dreams (or how they felt) when they woke up. As simple as that!

You can participate for as many days as you want, this can be one day, two or twenty-one! No pressure about this, you can get involved as much as you want 😊

 

How will my dreams support the project?

Sharing your dreams is the most precious way that you can contribute to this project. We are exploring potential connections through dreams and the existence of a collective unconscious, in particular a female collective unconscious.

Ultimately, we are doing something together and through doing so we will connect to each other. The more we participate the better the results will be 😊

 

Will my dreams be shared publicly?

No, your dreams will not be published. All the dreams received will be anonymous and they will be used to establish potential connections and also to inspire the creation of the 21 final stories.

 

How will the 21 stories be created and what would my involvement be?

The 21 stories will be created through four online story-making workshops that will run across July (3rd; 10th; 17th and 24th).

All the dreams collected will inspire the creation of the stories. Workshops will be available on Instagram and Facebook live and all participants are welcome to join. In these workshops you will have the opportunity to practice improvisation techniques, use your imagination, expand your creativity and have fun! On the other side and by practising creating other people’s stories, you might feel also empowered to create new chapters for your own story 😊

 

Does participating cost anything?

No, 21Dreams is completely free of charge

 

Who can participate and what do I need?

This project is open to women of all ages. 

You only need to have an email address and a smartphone

Why should I take part of this project?

You will be part of a collective work that aims to empower other women and girls that might feel more vulnerable. You will create a collective support just by taking part in it. Each of the resulting stories will generate a powerful message that will potentially make a positive impact on many other women worldwide.
