We Are Mini Dreamers Exhibition at Merseyway Stockport
Thanks to a fantastic response we received over 40 open call pieces for the exhibition of dreams by artists from Stockport all the way to California, USA! You can visit the fantastic contributions in the mini We Are Dreamers exhibition in The Doll’s House Art Gallery in partnership with Arc in Stockport from June 19th in a window opposite Pound Bakery in Merseyway Shopping Centre in central Stockport any day / time that the centre is open.
Want to be part of the next display of mini boxes at the Together Again exhibition at Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery opening September 25th? There’s still time to submit a piece! Deliver or post to Arc by August 31st. Visit the Keeping Us Together creative activity archive for full instructions, inspiration and sized template.
See all the pieces so far in the promo video below.
‘We Are Mini Dreamers’ invites you to express yourself by creating your own mini “dream world" inside a tiny box!
See the full activity, inspiration and where to send the finished piece on Arc's Keeping Us Together website, an archive of 30+ free creative activities.
Tell us in art form: What do you dream of? What do you love? What are you passionate about? What have you been longing for? What are you excited to experience? What is your passion or new found hobby that you can't wait to explore further out in the world? Your box could represent your future plans, hopes or dreams and be personal or concerned with wider issues. It could be a literal or more abstract representation. It's your dream world, you make the rules!
Are you a practicing artist? We would love foryou to respond to this call out too and we will do all we can to share your work online if you tag us and you'll be part of the exhibition to share that people to be able to visit.
About the Project
This is a very special and exciting project to encourage you to dream and look ahead, to use creativity to focus on the positives of emerging from our collective restrictions. You don’t have to send us your dreambox, but we would love to exhibit our dreams all together in the 1:12 scale gallery in the autumn.
