1st Part of the Project: Flying Dreams
For the past year we’ve been collecting dreams from everyday people in our
community using the statement “Imagine When…”
We want to write these dreams on giant-sized beach balls and balloons so we can toss around some big ideas and even bigger dreams.
2nd Part of the Project: Dream Cookies
"Imagine When..." fortune cookies are filled with dreams instead of cheesy advice.
We're going to print dreams we've collected on tiny slips of paper, and insert them into fortune cookies.
3rd Part of the Project: Sharing the Dream
And here’s the fun part, we’re going to pass out the Dream Fortune Cookies and let the Big Dreams Fly (on the balloons and beach balls) at Gallery Hop in the Arts District of Winston-Salem on Friday, October 5th.
- Fortune Cookies filled with real dreams from everyday people in Forsyth County
- Giant Sized and Medium Sized Beach Balls
- Balloons, String and Bean Bags
- LEDs to insert inside the balloons
- Permanent Markers in Fun Colors
About the Imagination Installation’s Project of Winston-Salem, NC
At the Imagination Installation Project we believe in harnessing the collective power of our community’s dreams. We do that by building Imaginariums: places where people can record their dreams and discover what others have shared.
Go here to see more photos of our first
dream exhibit at Earth Day Fair.
Winston-Salem’s Imagination Installation Project is an emerging grassroots effort that first came to life in August 2011 and is fueled by volunteers… more than 100 entrepreneurs, architects, artists, activists, community leaders, business owners, educators, designers and other innovators who love to think big and dream big.

Risks and challenges
We have already created several "Imagination Installations" in our community, and the technical expertise required is easy to find locally.
There is of course the risk of illness and injury that may affect the amount of balloons, beach balls, and fortune cookies we are able to create in time for the Oct. 5th Gallery Hop.
As this event is planned to primarily happen outside, weather might interfere if it rains. However, if that happens, we're ready to move into the Yoga Gallery and have the event there (one of our volunteers has already secured this as a possible backup location).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
