The In my dreams Art Residency was created in the Summer of 2016. I thought at the time there are plenty of art residencies for an artist to go to but they all have restrictions, fees, applications, committees, etc, etc.

Here at the In my dreams art residency, everyone is invited, just show up in my dreams! There's endless supplies, support, and space available. You can stay as long as you would like! The residency happens while you are dreaming so you don't have to give up work, move, have someone take care of your cats, etc...and you get to sleep on your own bed!

There is not an application fee nor a bunch of red tape to go through...but it does not mean getting into my dreams is going to be an easy task. It will be the combination of a lot of cognitive thinking along with experimentation and play that one will find themselves at this very unique art residency. 

Now, you ask why do I need funding for this art residency? Well, I need a place to sleep while I am dreaming and I could use shelter and food too. All very important to maintaining a healthy dream state. The $3000 will help keep In my dreams art residency afloat for a month. It will pay for most if not all of the bills.

I believe that trying to harness the power of dreams and opening ourselves to the dream World is truly a rewarding experience. And it's something we all should explore at some point in our lives. I hope to see you in my dreams!

Thank you for your time and keep dreaming!

Risks and challenges

The major challenge with my project is the fact that dreams and dreaming are things we do when we are asleep. So, it's sometimes hard to know what and if we dreamt anything at all. On top of all that, it will be extremely hard to know if anyone will ever make it into my dreams. But I think the power of suggestion and the awareness of the idea itself will generate some interesting results. This is truly an experiment and hopefully a fun one too!
