Dreaming the Cities

Dreaming The Cities

Dreaming The Cities is a virtual event designed to connect emerging artists and/or art collectives from the underprivileged and diverse communities of distant cities in the world through co-creation sessions.

About the project

Dreaming The Cities is a digital co-creation event-experiment designed to connect independent artists from distant cities’ art scenes through an exchange of ideas on cultural production and the realization of joint projects. In this first edition, the project proposes to build a bridge of over 15,000 km to connect the millenary city of Lahore, Pakistan to the multicultural metropolis of São Paulo, Brazil. Three pairs of artists representing each city will meet throughout 4 sessions of dialogue and exchange of knowledge on creative modes and local cultures that will allow to creatively imagine and speculate possible urban futures and will result in artistic performances presented to the public in a live session. 

Dreaming The Cities is produced by Linha 3 (BR), Rearts (PK) with the support of DICE – Developing Inclusive and Creative Economies, British Council.
