Festival of Sleep

Sleep is part of our everyday life while at the same time unknown and mysterious. The festival explores sleeps through the materials, behaviours, and relationships experienced in our homes.

From June to September 2022

Through performances, artistic interventions, and debates you can explore how our understanding and experience of sleep has shifted over time and across cultures to try to help us sleep better today.

Throughout the festival we will delve into our dreaming minds, address the inequalities of sleep, explore the ways that we can improve health and wellbeing by adapting how we sleep and bring this intangible aspect of our homes to life.

Some of the themes we'll be exploring include:

  • Sleep and Home
  • Dreams
  • Sleep and Tech
  • The Inequity of Sleep
  • The Perfect Environment for Sleep
  • Sleep and Kids

The festival is part of our campaign for change, Behind the Door, which aims to raise awareness and shift perceptions of women and families experiencing homelessness today.
