Artistic Dream Day

Artistic Dream Day

“Plant the seeds of your dream, prioritize creativity, get tools for empowerment and meet like-minded teenagers.”

We are calling out to teenagers who are seeking support in considering a next step on their artistic path. You are between 13 and 18 years old and you want to explore your creativity and art. You enjoy many creative activities but are looking for more focus. You want to collaborate with like-minded people to make this world more beautiful. This is an invitation to explore, express and empower. We will meet on Saturday, March 23, 2024, at the Rancho do Rogil, during the Artistic Dream Day.

This day will be dedicated to the dreams of our teenagers. We offer a diverse program with art workshops, empowerment practices and inspiring performances of local artists. At the end of the day you will go home with your own creation related to your dream. This could be (for example) a song, a performance, a painting, a poem, a photo/photo series, a video, a dance or a drawing. There will be different types of art teachers to guide you through the stages of making art. We will work in small groups, so we have limited spots available. Tickets are almost out.

About the origins of this workshop

The Artistic Dream Day is an initiative of Jaimey Groot and Eline van Campen. Jaimey is a documentary film maker and media teacher. Eline is a drama teacher and retreat facilitator. Jaimey and Eline met during an creative entrepreneurship course. In the last meeting they connected to collaborate. Jaimey had been looking for a drama teacher for her film workshops. Among the youth of the South of Portugal, she notices a high demand for art, photography, film and acting lessons. Together with Eline, Jaimey wants to support teenagers to find their dream and follow their artistic path. 

 

Jaimey had traveled a long way to find her own vocation.

During her high school years she felt a big pressure to perform within the school system and her dreams moved to the background. She finally ended up at the University of Arts, Utrecht and graduated with a film documentary about the failing educational system that made a huge impact among parents and teachers in The Netherlands. (Pin me er niet op vast/Look before I leap – 2018). From a very young age it was clear to her that visual thinking and creativity is our force. As children, in the school system, we are taught to push this force away instead of embracing it. Looking back at her own teenager years, it would have been helpful to follow a program or coaching path that helped her to get in contact with her inner child and from there to concretize her dream and find her vocation. Living according to your personal vocation, for her, is doing that little thing which almost takes no energy and effort. The thing you did as a child that made you forget time, space and the self for a while. The thing you are already doing naturally, effortlessly. In this ‘state of flow’ , she believes, you can be the best version of yourself. What you thought was meaningless becomes meaningful if you see the value of it for happiness, health and creating a better world.
