Testimony believes in people and their stories.
We also believe in the power of taking those stories; those painful, tired, damaged stories, and turning them into something new and beautiful.
The Dreamcatcher Project is the creative and positive outlet for individuals who wish to share their stories in an artistic and more abstract form. The story teller creates the dreamcatcher by hand, incorporating items and images which represent special parts of their story. They also write and attach the associated story to the dreamcatcher to symbolize their life, their struggle…their dreams.
These dreamcatchers are the unique, creative expression of emotional times in the storyteller’s life and no two will be the same in size, color, and style. The dreamcatchers are available to people for donation as symbols of hope and inspiration, for others who are still immersed in their struggles. They represent a dream realized for those who dream of life better, healthier, sober.
In addition to the struggles of Testimony clients, the dreamcatchers can tell the stories of people across the globe. With the simple materials used to create dreamcatchers, people in third world countries can make their stories known through the sale of their created dreamcatchers, providing valuable sources of income to struggling populations.
