I Dream of Congo

Narratives from the Great Lakes


“There is a need to dream that the three year old I walked with in the displaced camp, under the shadow of the volcano this morning, will have a safer, more stable and happier life than her mother and father. There is a need to dream, because without the dream, the future is unthinkable.” -Marcus Bleasdale


ART WORKS Projects was excited to guest curate the exhibit I Dream of Congo, produced by Congo Connect, a UK-based group of individuals who are working to raise hope for eastern Congo.


Congo Connect’s exhibition I Dream of Congo: Narratives from the Great Lakes is a unique exhibition combining words and images from renowned international creatives alongside a groundbreaking exhibition of photos taken by women in eastern Congo.
