Illuminated dreams in Alexandria and Abu Hammad

”Illuminated dreams” was a pilot-project, consisting of a cross-disciplinary practice of social sculpture and psyco-drama, where the civil society organisation Life Foundation, Egypt and art organisation, ArtAgent, Sweden produced workshops for female ex-prisoners in Alexandria and Aby Hammad, Egypt. It was an exchange of art practices between the organisations in Egypt and Sweden, implementation of art and drama workshops, meetings and building of networks for the the future. The projects aimed to give the women new channels to express themselves freely in society.

The project was funded by Creative Force, the Swedish Institute.
