• Dreams for young people

    Arts & Culture

    The Dream World Programme started with the desire to make the dreams of children around the world come true.

    In 2003, UNESCO and Felissimo launched the DREAM World Institute Programme which aims to offer art programmes (visual arts, dance, music, words and other forms of creative expressions) to children in developing countries who otherwise may not have the opportunities to learn arts and to develop and appreciate their own creativity.

    Art encourages curiosity. Reading is included in the programme so that the curiosity can be led to poetry, literature and history behind arts, music and dance. Gaining new knowledge and inspiration, learning the rewards of discipline, and learning how to express their creativity will give children the best tool for dreaming for the future.

    The DREAM World Institute has a dream of its own. It is that no matter how small the programme might start, children's eyes will always be open to a bigger world.

    There are Dream Centres in Cambodia, Afganistan and Haiti.

  • D.R.E.A.M. actually stands for Dance, Read, Express, Art, Music. In addition to those locations mentioned, we built one in Monvovia, Liberia in 2006. This year a new one is being built in East Jerusalem.
