Dreamweaver Bus

Imagine a magical school bus that is home and transportation to a half dozen creative charactersartists, visionaries, storytellers, crafters, dreamers, performers, and musiciansall sharing their unique perspective of an incredible collaborative adventure through their own personal creativity. The bus is fueled by recycled vegetable oil, powered by solar, and contributed to by an entire community of passionate people giving through their gifts.

Where is it going and what are these goofballs doing on the bus? That’s where you come in!

The bulk of the eight-day quest will be devoted to the free flow of inspiration and spontaneous creativity; however, there will also be opportunities for collaboration, conversation, gift giving, and adventure. We respect each individual’s creative process and personal freedom to participate only as you feel inclined.
