24 hours of immersive art, music, dance, healing, conversations, parties, and more!
Dreamers' Lab is an open invitation to all who Dare to Dream Big, who are ready to take that first step to put their Dreams into Action, who want to use their Gifts and Talents to inspire other Dreamers to do the same :)
Every month, a unique theme is chosen as the focal point of that month's offerings.
For March 2021, the chosen theme is CATERPILLAR, in relation to the Worm Moon on March 28th, as well as a further development of the previous month's theme, YIN YANG.
Last month, we focused on YIN YANG, on ideas such as Duality, Polarities, Balance. This month, we'd like to focus on how the YIN and YANG merge together into an Integrated whole, where we take the Caterpillar as the integrated 'child' of two "opposite" butterflies. Alternately, we'd also like to invite everyone to contemplate the notion of the Caterpillar Self, in relation to the Butterfly Self.
In which aspects of your life do you feel like you're in a Caterpillar phase? How about the Butterfly phase? How would you characterize your Caterpillar Self, as opposed to your Butterfly Self?
For this particular Dreamers' Lab, we had a special festival map for people to navigate the events and venues within the festival, courtesy of our friends at Sparkle. Here you can check out a short video tutorial explaining the use of the map:
In the spirit of Collaboration and Co-creation, we have six awesome collectives / communities who are partnering with us for this month's Dreamers' Lab, many of whom have been partnering us for the past few months now! They are:
These collectives / communities have been doing great work in their own ways, and despite the diversity in our creations, we are aligned in many of our basic values and ideas of what we want to bring into this New Earth.
As such, you will see offerings from these communities on top of our own, and have the opportunity to connect with a vast network of like-minded souls :) in the case of Sparkle Labs, they will in fact be hosting our Event Map, which would allow you to have a more visual experience of the festival! In a time where many are isolated, we hope to offer a space for Connection, Creativity, and Healing for all of you Dreamers out there <3
