In bringing forth creative expression inspired by dreams, we bridge connections between dream and waking worlds, and to the wisdom, inspiration, healing, innovation and creativity that dreams transmit to us.
Whatever form your art may take, sharing these dream-inspired creations online in our virtual gallery brings forth expressions for others to explore, deepening the connection between this world and dream worlds.
To participate, you will need to a send us a .jpg or .pdf image of your dream-based artwork and a text narrative of the dream itself.
Eligibility: Your original work in any medium inspired by and depicting dreams. Artistic mediums can include paintings, drawings, journal sketches, digital artwork, photography, doodles, cartoons, poetry, crafts, textiles, sculpture, poetry, music and animation. Only PsiberDreaming conference attendees’ gallery entries will be accepted, so that artists and other conference attendees have greater opportunity to connect and to discuss the gallery.
Anyone can enter! It’s not an art competition: all we’re looking for is the dream to share and enjoy. No matter whether you’re professionally accomplished, just starting out, or simply a dream enthusiast who just feels driven to express their favourite dream, we welcome all dream-inspired expressions as a form of dream-sharing through creativity!
Your entry must be accompanied by dream text to tell your dream. Due to time constraints, we limit art gallery submissions to one work per artist. Images and text will be displayed in an online Dream Journal format.

Looking for inspiration?
Consider how metaphor in your dreams might reveal the Dreamwide web, our true interconnectivity linked through dreams and psi, in ways that have you waking up knowing or feeling something different.
The Internet, as of 2018, is estimated to have over 4 billion users, with 3.2 billion using social media. Over the information superhighway, we connect with friends old and new, family across the globe, and distant cultures. And with a tool like The Wayback Machine
, we can even reach across time to visit web pages from the past.
Yet compared to the concept of Akashic records
, this worldwide web seems minuscule: imagine a multidimensional “compendium of all human events, thoughts, words, emotions, and intent ever to have occurred in the past, present, or future”! Even the potential of a collective unconscious -richly laden with timeless symbols, instincts, and archetypes – suggests a network of worlds stretching out into an interconnected universe and beyond, across time, selves, and ancestors.
Our dreams connect us to these vast realms and all they hold. In dreaming, we transcend time, space, and dimensions to connect with, explore, and discover what lies beyond and also within: we can also access our higher self, past and future selves, divine forces, and more. In doing so, we progressively come to understand how connected we all are.
