DreamOut People’s Project

DreamOut People’s Project is a customized workshop that blends oral history, creative writing and visual art for the purpose of community building. Our mission is to nurture dynamic connections between community members that inspire, educate and empower. The aim of this workshop is to establish the foundation for resilience, growth and social change within our communities.

At the end of the workshop, participants will have an “Individualized Dream Plan” and a “Group Dream Plan” that will encourage them to continue their dreamwork. Here, everyone’s story matters and everyone is a creative force. Participants will also make an art piece called a “Dreambox.”

DreamOut People’s Project facilitates authentic explorations of community, history, art, social change and self. This sparks conversations that change the world…one person at a time.

Connection Station: Where Community Helpers Share & Grow Resources (2020)

Mother's Day Themed DreamOut Workshop (2010)
Children interviewed their mothers, who were asked to bring a unique family artifact. Afterwards, they wrote a narrative together based on the artifact's connection to their family's story. The story and the artifact were placed inside their original Dreambox for safekeeping and personal reflection.
