Join artist and researcher Grace Whorrall-Campbell and psychotherapist George Taxidis for a workshop and conversation about dreaming, queerness and psychoanalysis. In the session, George and Grace invite you to participate in a Social Dreaming Matrix, an experimental space for playing with dreams. The aim of the Matrix is not to interpret the dreams for the individual but to make connections between dreams to generate collective understanding. Together, we will think about the utility of dreams as a tool for community building and creative reflection.
Participation in the Matrix is voluntary and if you wish to take part, we ask you to bring with you a memory of a recent dream. This session has been organised by researcher, artist and A/WA member Grace Whorrall-Campbell.
This session is free to attend and will be held on Zoom. Please register by emailing info (at) artworkassociation.org. Registered attendees will receive the link 10 minutes in advance of the discussion
