Notes from Festival Social Dreaming Matrices #3: Thurs 19 Oct 2017
Thursday 19th October 10.30-11.45, Wellcome Collection Reading Room
Hosts: Tim Dartington and Mira Erlich- Ginor
There were about 30 participants with a 1 to 10 male female ratio mixed ages and a variety of accents of people from different countries. 9 dreams were offered to the matrix.
An early theme had to do with danger, with choosing to go towards danger, venturing out and then of pulling back from the threat. There was walking on the roof of a church , there were multi layered/belonging dreams, bed clothes being rearranged. Later dreams included children with a theme of protection and/or deprivation leading to a dream where a child is seen to fall down a well then is discovered to have been caught safely by a man. This good ending was a surprise to the matrix and led to a number of associations about smiling with children and responding to them. In the sequence of matrices during the week this session seemed to end with more hope than before.
