Dreams and a Heart is Regina Mendes’ long-running participatory artwork for peace. Each doll is filled with dreams and given a heart, before the maker completes a short mediation with the dolls, guided by the artist.
Regina’s dream is to make one doll for every human on the planet. Like the hope for peace, this seemingly impossible task happens slowly, gently, one heart at a time. You are invited to join Regina and make your own dolls to add to the growing community
With over 1800 dolls made over the last 7 years, this exhibition is a celebration of the work completed so far; sharing the first 700 and working towards our 2100th doll.
Regina will be on hand to help you add your doll to the collection 5-10pm Wednesday to Friday, Saturday 12 and 19 5-10pm and Sunday 20 5-10pm. You are welcome to view the exhibition any other time the Common Room is open. Doll-making is free and open to all.
