Dream overview

Canal Dream Art Festival is a non-profit community-based and nature-based multi-arts event. Through multi-disciplinary engagement and cross-sector collaboration, we bring emerging creatives to the old canal in order to create opportunities for the young artists' practice, community well-being, and canal regeneration.


The heart of our programme is socially engaged art, as well as poetic community service.
