OUR PURPOSE

Dreams Hatchery is on a mission to use art to create a safe environment where children are able to convey their emotions during traumatic experiences, such as abuse, neglect and/or homelessness.

“Art is a wound turned into light.”
Georges Braque

We are bringing art to children in foster homes in order to help them learn about their feelings and express their emotions. Through art, they will develop new skills that will help restore their confidence and self-esteem, learn that there is hope and discover a bright future.

WHY ART IS IMPORTANT?

Dreams Hatchery focuses on the expressive and sensory properties of art that encourage the development of creativity in childhood.

The childhood development process, in many cases, is interrupted when there is emotional trauma. Art helps a child to gradually develop more complex skills on the simpler ones. Childhood development empowers children for effective independent survival as adults.
