THEME: Dreams, Daydreaming & Dreamers

Participating artists are expected to explore the theme: Dreams, Daydreaming & Dreamers in their submitted artwork:

Description of theme:

Hope is real, imagining is plausible, reality is a dream.

Present days are a challenge, however it is up to us; the citizens, to keep dreaming up our future even when conditions are stacked against us. Dreaming has become a politcal act, a rebel one, but not all dreams are good dreams. Is reality a dream or a nightmare? Who dreamed it? There was a moment in time when the “American dream” was something to fight for. What has become of that? If the dreamers are no longer welcome, who ́s going to dream? Where is the dream going to go? What becomes of this new reality?
