|The weekly Droomwevers workshops continue to run at full speed. Henry is currently assisted by Moira who leads the artworkshops, Guusje (games), Niels (dance) and Kees as an all-round volunteer.|
The school next to the Buurtzaak (De Toekomst) has also expressed interest in the Droomwevers workshops.We are now in agreement with this school since it Droomwevers offer to realiseren. We are also in discussion with the Revue de Pare who organize cultural programs for children as well as adults.
We often receive solicitations from artists, administrators and recently a sound engineer.
Some projects develop less quickly than others, such as the photo book project.
Two new books on English idioms are being developed, including songs and illustrations. Maestraccio is in charge of the music arrangements and Henry sings the songs in English. Ademir Arapovic and Arend Smit create the illustrations.

Illustrator and Graphic Designer
Julia is an illustrator and graphic designer who, among other things, makes digital paintings of for instance birds. Using digital design is Julia’s preferred form of creating art. We at Dreamweavers welcome this. Julia’s has made two illustrations for our Green ABC, namely Bicycles and Bugs.
The Green ABC teaches children in a playful way to develop bigger environmental awareness. By using poems, songs and last but not least illustration we hope to teach children the importance of taking care of our planet.
Julia is a very talented young artist. The clean cut style of her illustrations is very appealing to us and fits in well with the other illustrations of the Green ABC. Naturally, we are elated that Julia has agreed to help us and we look forward to a rewarding partnership for both parties.
