The Social Dreaming Matrix

Social Dreamers as they guide us through the spiral of our collective dreams.
After the dreamtime has concluded feel free to creatively express yourself in
your own way.
The Boat of Dreams Parade
Sunday at 2:00pm
Don your wackiest costume! Create a biodegradable boat and join us as we parade
to the river's edge to release our dreams! We also welcome any musicians to
accompany us. Or just bring a drum and sing or hum!
Sunday at 3:00pm
This ain't your gramma's lawn game! This loosely "competitive" event will take
you through some of the most challenging courses in croquet history! The rules
are nebulous and the prize is just a piece of junk! Create your own mallet and
bring a ball small enough to fit through a standard croquet wicket. Cheating is

Artica's New Neighbors
Artica has new neighbors this year. The downturn in the economy has
unfortunately left some people without homes and there are new neighbors
encamped just west of the floodwall. It is very important that we respect these
people and their spaces. Please contain your activity and creativity to the
appropriate Artica site.
