Mark of Dreams: UNESCO's DREAM Center logo competition

Competition Details


by rodrigo marquez

The first time I read about this contest I really got excited about D.R.E.A.M.’s proposal. From my point of view D.R.E.A.M.isn’t just an artistic project is a revival of believing, imagening and creating a unique reality.
I didn’t want to focus the image of my logo in just one of D.R.E.A.M.’s activities: Dance, Read, Express, Art and Music because for me it’s much more than any of them, is returning future, peaceful expectations and freedom to kids. I chose the hummingbird to represent a vehicle for bringing together reality and magic, what’s tangible and what’s subjective, like any of art’s ramifications would do.
For me a DREAM is not only the posibility of closing your eyes and being taken away to a fantastic non realistic place or circumstance, to make acquaintances with new, old and great people or incredible places; for me a DREAM or in this case D.R.E.A.M. is also knowing that you are capable of reaching a goal no matter if it does not fit into your every day reality, it does not matter if it seems imposible or unachievable, if you want it, work for it and really wish it you can achieve everything.
I am ecstatic and hopeful to participate in this contest.
Thank you.
