In the realm of dreams, we are free of the restraints of reality and can navigate a world of innocence and purity. This open call seeks works that explore the limitless and honest nature of dreams, revealing our genuine selves sans society masks.

“You’re Innocent in Your Dreams” calls for artists to create works that reflect the purity and honesty found in our dreams. Artists are encouraged to interpret this theme liberally, providing their own ideas on how dreams can expose the raw core of our inner worlds.

Submissions should critically analyse the nature of dreams, encouraging viewers to discover and artistically portray the subconscious’s hidden layers.

We welcome submissions that explore the link between dreams and reality, emphasising the innocence and sincerity present in our dreamscapes. The goal is to develop a visual language that expresses the impact of our dream experiences on both personal and collective levels, fostering a deeper understanding of the complexities of human perception and emotional depth.
