“The current political moment calls for bold leaps of imagination, new forms of organizing and a fearless blend of confrontation and celebration.”

Naomi Klein, author of No Logo & The Shock Doctrine

I Dream Your Dream

“I Dream Your Dream” is an interactive ritual designed to be performed on the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech, each August 28. Participants write down their own dreams for a better world on a colored ribbon, then exchange these dreams with a stranger. The other person’s dream is tied around the participant’s wrist. By promising to wear it until it falls off, the participant in effect makes a promise to protect the other’s dream. In doing so, participants recommit themselves to the cause and to each other; the political is personalized in a very intimate way. “I Dream Your Dream” was inspired by the art installation “I Wish Your Wish” by Rivane Neuenschwander.
