Key people

Join us on 24 May for an in person immersive Lunchtime Talk session at the Tavistock Institute office space @63 Gee Street in London.

Juliet Scott, Bongsu Park, and Marie Beauchamps, the three artists involved in our current exhibition Social Dreams, Social Matters: Artistic Affluence in Social Dreaming, bring together different practices inspired by social dreaming. The exhibition critically explores the generative and performative nature of dreaming, connecting the richness of artistic responses with the theory and practice of Social Dreaming a radical exercise in sharing, associating to and working with dreams.

For this lunchtime session, Juliet Scott, Bongsu Park, and Marie Beauchamps create an immersive container that includes experimenting with a new form of social dreaming matrix as informed by the artists different practices. What emerges will continue the explorations unfolding in their work together, building on the ongoing conversation between these works and the practice space of the Tavistock Institute.

Grounded in their practices and the story of their collaboration with TIHR, the artists invite you to join them in an inquiry that touches upon the power of dreams and their potential to change how we think about ourselves and the wider world. This is also an invitation to explore the significance of the artists presence in organisational ecologies, including processes of archiving and translation, taking dreams and social dreaming into the digital realm.

There will be an opportunity to look around and enjoy the exhibition after the session.
