DREAM: Joburg 2011 is an initiative adopted by Dion Chang (Flux) as the South African version of The Dreamers Project, one which aims to send out a message of unity amongst artists, using different art forms and visiting countries around the world. This one is a photography project, based in Johannesburg, taking place this Saturday 16 April at the Orlando Towers in Soweto. All artists, dreamers and children of Johannesburg are invited to participate.
