la nuit des idées

Power to the imagination

The Dream Envelope

On Thursday, January 25th at 6:30PM, for la Nuit des Idées, a French worldwide cultural event, we will be giving « Power to the imagination » according to this year’s theme. How? By recreating a ceremony inspired by South American First Nations: a “Dream Envelope”!

It is a collaborative and artistic creation that consists of assembling natural elements on a wide circular paper, which will be folded and then burnt or buried at the end of the ceremony to release the imaginative forces into the nature. It is a beautiful, natural and colourful ceremony, meant to bring people together to build a new future together.

Nicholas Jones, from Building Dreams, will be presenting the ceremony and the beliefs behind it, and we will then, together, make our own “Dream Envelope”.

This is a FREE activity!


As we are located inside of a cultural and artistic hub, we are hoping to get the whole community involved in this event, by calling out to the different neighbouring artists and associations, to imagine together the future of cSPACE. 

It is important for us to know how many people are attending our events so that we can prepare them appropriately. Thank you for your understanding!
