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.

About Sam Nightingale

This is where I would write a short description about myself. Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
