HoPE Storytelling Festival - Dreams Session


Event details



Everyone makes stories during sleep that can metaphorically depict our waking life experiences and concerns. Have you wondered what waking life memories have led to a dream?  Discuss a recent or important or intriguing dream you have had. While you discuss it, Julia Lockheart captures your dream narrative in a work of art drawn and painted onto pages taken from the first English translation of Freud’s book The Interpretation of Dreams. After the session the dreamer will receive a high quality mounted Giclée print of the artwork to display at home and discuss with family and friends. The event is part of the DreamsID  (Dreams Illustrated and Discussed, Dreams Interpreted and Drawn) art science collaboration.

Dr Julia Lockheart is Associate Professor at Swansea College of Art, University of Wales Trinity Saint David, and Associate Lecturer at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Professor Mark Blagrove is Professor of Psychology at Swansea University and researches the science of sleep and dreaming.
