Dreaming - Tales from the Age of Aquarius
Dreaming explores the genesis of the alternative movement in Australia
and its social, cultural and spiritual impact on our world today.
Centred around the towns of Nimbin and Byron Bay in northeastern New
South Wales, the ‘Rainbow Region’ has been at the forefront
of social change since the Aquarius Festival, held in Nimbin in May
This photo-documentary maps out the legacy of the alternative movement:
respect for oneself, each other, and the world we live in, and shows
how it has an even greater relevance today than when first articulated
in the 1960's and 70's.
The exhibition comprises the work of over one hundred photographers,
writers, poets, filmmakers, activists and cultural visionaries.
Rainbow Dreaming explores the evolution of a culture committed to peace
and sustainable living in a world on the brink of change.
The culture of the Rainbow Region offers a vision that, in a time of
crisis, embraces the future with hope. A vision that sees the human
family as one, living in harmony with all of creation.
