NightShift

Along with the 2015 Dream Convergence in New Orleans, an exhibition will coincide with the
Dream Caravan. The event will be an exploration of dreams and their intersections with a variety of
modalities including art, culture, and other healing practices. Alongside workshops, lectures, and
presenting vendors, artists working in a range of mediums are invited to show dream-inspired
artwork and to share their connection to the dreamworld (and all that might encompass). The
exhibition NightShift will present the theme of using dreams as inspiration. From diving into
personal motifs to representing a larger cultural ideology, the presented work will encourage
discussion about the meeting point of the inner and outer world, and display the limitless access
points that dreams can offer.
Details: The Dream Caravan and the NightShift exhibition will be held on November 8th, 2015
at the New Orleans Healing Center on Saint Claude Ave. From 11am-4pm, two indoor rooms and
an outside deck will showcase the artwork. Pieces can be displayed on the walls inside as well as
easels set up outside. Following the one-day event, artwork will be transferred to Libre Wellness in
New Orleans to be on display for three months.
