Dreams for the Future is a massive celebration taking place across two weekends and inspired by the opening of Moat Brae - Peter Pan’s Enchanted Land, in Dumfries. The keys to Moat Brae have been taken from Captain Hook by the ‘JMB Creatives’ who are planning a Festival that brings a whole new perspective to Dumfries.
Using the power of imagination and a sprinkling of fairy dust, the young people of Dumfries take over running Moat Brae and invite you to join in the celebrations.
If you’re aged 8-26 you could be part of this amazing project with fun workshops, brainstorms, commissions and a programme of creative and technical sessions running throughout 2018 to help you prepare. Bring your ideas and enthusiasm and help make Moat Brae a special place for generations of young people into the future.
The result will be a stunning series of events at Moat Brae and across Dumfries from Sat 24 Nov to Sun 2 Dec 2018 comprising seven different elements: Schools!, Inspired!, Mutiny!, Shared!, Staged!, a Dramatised Trail and a huge CrocRock! Parade for the whole community, where Peter Pan and Tinker Bell provide the spark to light up Dumfries for Christmas 2018.
Following a Co-Design approach, young people are a driving force in shaping, developing and implementing all events for the Year of Young People 2018.
