The 2013 Dreams & Divinities Travelling Show

The 2013 Dreams & Divinities Travelling Show just completed an Equinox to Equinox odyssey through Andalucia and into Paris. The exhibit consisted of fifty five artists from the book ‘Divining the Dream’and three guest artists. There were ninety-four pieces of art in total. Poets, performers, musicians and digital artists offered performances at the various events, engaging the public in a multi-sensorial experience.

How it all came together

Liba WS was offered by Yamal Din, the head of the Spanish Fiarte, some magnificent noncommercial places – a museum, town hall, a historical church and cultural center- to exhibit a selection of artists and create events. Then Jean Michel Gassend of La Porte Soleil along with the Société des Poétes Français offered to host parts of the show in Paris. Lots of wonderful opportunities but no one had money. Spain was broke and funding for the arts had been cut. Liba had a book and a network but also no funding. So the community just came together and it happened. Artwork started arriving… Performers and Video Jockeys, musicians, poets and artists flew into the beautiful places and exchanged and offered their skills as a gift to each other and to the public. The artists helped hang the shows, network it, transport it. (in part) Transport, printing and logistical costs were pretty much covered by book sales, donations and one paid event. The result was we made it happen and the exhibits and most events remained free for everyone to enjoy.
