WAKE-UP! The Political Power of Art and Dreams

September 18th, 2018

Like surrealism, the political-art movement opposing totalitarianism in the aftermath of the horrors of World War 1, the power of art and dreaming in these turbulent times holds the possibility of social change.

Art and dreams are conduits to truth, paths to healing and transformation. Art and dreams wake us to reality and response.

That is why I am curating and inviting you to “Wake-Up! The Political Power of Art and Dreams,” a mixed media exhibition at the Claudia Chapline Gallery, Stinson Beach, California, October 6-October 28, is set the month before the 2018 Congressional elections to create dialogue and raise consciousness about U.S domestic and foreign policy.

An opening day reception will be held from 2-4 pm on Saturday, October 6.

At the reception; attendees will share/write/sketch their political dreams to inspire positive action.

The exhibition in the pop-up gallery will include works derived from dreams by Northern California artists: Dream Vessels by MARSHA CONNELL; Flag of Death and other images of war by CLAUDIA CHAPLINE; works by artist-activist RICHARD KAMLER; FrankenBush by ADAM HARMS; They Never Stood a Chance, an installation of remembrance and survival by JENNIFER LUGRIS; and Dream Veritas! From Tragedy to Transformation, a multimedia presentation of dream profiles by journalist and exhibition curator JOYCE
LYNN, and more.

Several graphic pieces will capture dreams about Donald Trump.

WAKE-UP! is an activity of the 50 State Initiative of ForFreedoms.org, a platform for civic engagement, discourse, and direct action for artists in the U.S.

A percentage of sales from the exhibition will be donated to Bay Area peace candidates.

DREAMS: A Trim-Tab Tool for the 21st Century

September 9th, 2014

Dreams are the trim-tab tool for a 21st century transformation. Trim-tab is a nautical term referring to an action giving the best result for the least effort. Be a trim-tabber for your cause or issue or simply for democracy by listening to your dreams. Then, be prepared to hear fact-based information, instigate creative action,and develop positive public policy.

Listening to your dreams can jump-start your political activism. Listening to your dreams offers new ways to inform, rally, or remedy the push for planetary change. A shift in consciousness brings a shift in effectiveness. I know from personal experience and from the many trim-tabbers I have interviewed awareness of truth  gleaned from dreams leads to right action.

Whether you are a political activist, journalist, politician, or concerned citizen, dreams can help you find or create your path to transform society and bring justice and peace to our troubled world.

Here at PLUM DREAMS JOURNAL(PLUMDREAMS.COM), you can read the stories of those who have called on the wisdom within to enhance efficacy as a trim-tabber for positive social change. Read how dreams guided my pioneering reporting on the role of oil in 9/11 and revealed other truths unavailable in the mainstream media. Profiles of Nazi student resistance fight Sophie School, 9/11 widow Ellen Mariani, and peace activist Cindy Sheehan, among many others, show the power of dreaming.

“A journalist must travel through a story by examining all the connections and interconnections between events and characters in order to arrive at ‘Truth.’ Joyce Lynn, well aware of journalism’s traditions and heritage, takes this approach one level deeper. She states that for a journalist, a writer, or indeed, any individual to know truth, one must examine all the events and characters in the ‘seen’ world against the backdrop of one’s ‘unseen,’ i.e. dream world. And, only when all these connections are made can one realize ‘Truth.’ – Carol S., Journalist, Northern California
