'19     "Dream News - Unelma Uutiset" / Ii-Finland

In the work called “Dream News” I explore the effects of dreams on the future. Can’t the future be formed with our dreams instead of the patches we produce for the problems that we are experiencing?


Newspapers provide yesterday's information, while the news of the future is hidden in today's imaginations. The publication “Dream News” is a collaborative experiment to create tomorrow by today’s imaginations.


Dream News contains notes and drawings of the participants answering to “What is your dream here and after?”


This paper collects dreams from different communities in different geographies. It makes the dreams expressed in order to make them visible, heard and maybe realized, with the hope that it mediates them for the considerations of others as well.


The first issue of the paper “Dream News / Unelma Uutiset” was done in Ii-Finland. It was made within Lähde! project which aimed to prevent social exclusion. It was funded by European Social Fund and run by the Oulunkaari Consortium of Municipalities and Art Centre KulttuuriKauppila. The content and design of this issue was realized together with the customers and colleagues of Myötätuuli and Tolppa Mental Health Rehabilitation Centers in Ii and Oulu, IiPaja Unemployed Center in Ii.
