is covered in pockets. Each pocket has a dream inside which someone has written.
Anyone can have a dream from a pocket but they must exchange it for a dream of their own.
So they give their dream......and get a stranger’s dream.
Those dreams can be of the sleeping kind, daydreams, aspirations, visions or fantasies.
All kinds of dreams, all kinds of people.
The Dreamcoat was created by Nicola Sokell in 2005. It’s an invitation for connection and reflection and an opportunity to see our individual dreams as part of the collective whole, and how our dream stories, and the lives and world we create from them, are a constant collaboration.
As dreams are a language that everyone understands in some way, the journey of the coat is ever expanding. Places and people it's visited include:
