Greetings, lovely Kickstarter Backers!

It's been a long time since our Place-dreamer pod tour, but the memories remain strong. The experiences we had, the folk we met, and the music we heard have continued to inspire the journeys of our lives and others. Now we have a surprise for you, a new outcome from our journeys for you to enjoy!


We are very happy to announce the launch of a Kindle book on Amazon, that chronicles the journey to Ireland that you helped to fund. It’s an almanac of sorts, to dip into again and again. Written by Anna Keleher and illustrated with some of our many journey drawings, Dreaming Place: An Irish Adventure with Claire Coté is available on Amazon Kindle, just in time for Christmas. You can preview it here.

A gift of our Kindle travel book this Christmas will give your family, friends, or neighbours many hours of reading pleasure (£2.75 GBP or $3.50 USD).  

Seasons greetings, health and happiness to you all!

 

Dreaming Place Book Synopsis 
Part One: Wild Dreams and the Memories of the land – a 40 day 40 night adventure in the Irish borderlands, exploring ‘Dreams of place and how lands speak through dreamers.’  Wild camping, kayaking, cycling and swimming the the hills and loughs, Anna and Claire encounter human and non-human characters who tell them all they need to know.    

Part Two: Dreaming the Off-grid Way - Anna and Claire return to rove the borderlands with their solar-powered listening space in tow. As they travel they collect stories, make drawings, find ecosystems under threat and discover what it means to go off the beaten track.   

$3.50 - Buy the Book on Amazon US
£2.75 - Buy the Book on Amazon UK

New review of "Radio Dreaming" by Tracey Warr

Posted by Anna Keleher and Claire Coté (Creator)

We are delighted to share a wonderfully evocative, new piece of writing about Radio Dreaming and Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark, by novelist and art writer Tracey Warr. It is called “Under The Blanket of the Land: ClaireandAnna, Radio Dreaming.”

It starts:

“Hold a shell up to your ear and you hear the sound of the sea, a sound that tells you maritime stories, conjures up ships, waves, tides coming in laden with seaweed, sea breezes whipping your hair into your eyes. Artists Claire Coté and Anna Keleher make artworks that do something similar but with the sound of the land instead. Their artworks and radio broadcasts invoke ancient and contemporary stories of the land: its undulations, its soils, the layers of rock beneath our feet in a subterranean world usually hidden from view. The artists use the human geography and history of landscapes to speculate about our shared future.”

You can find the essay in its entirety on the a-n website here, or it can be viewed with images on our site here or be downloaded as an illustrated PDF here.

We hope you enjoy it. Let us know what you think!
