It’s easy to feel helpless in the face of injustices we find upsetting. It can feel overwhelming and all consuming. Yet neuroscience shows us that by having a vision rather than just fixating on a problem, our brains start finding ways to turn those visions into reality.
“This Dream-making project taps into this insight. It’s designed to engage the creative, conscious, planning system in your brain – the prefrontal cortex – and help you consider how to join the dots and explore routes to a better future.” – Dr Charlotte Rae, neuroscientist at the University of Sussex
“I found it so interesting, and a proper challenge, to think deeply about what my utopian dream actually is.” Fabienne at one of the Craftivist Collective’s first dream-making workshops
