Imagine When …

We Believe in Harnessing the Collective …………. Power of our Community’s Dreams

……….. ………. Dream It. Share It. Be It.

The Imagination Installation Project is about building Imaginariums: places where people can record their dreams and discover what others have shared.

We do this by collecting “Imagine When … ” statements from everyday people in Forsyth County, North Carolina and sharing them through public art installations, and our web site, Facebook & Twitter pages and Imagination Events.

History: On August 30, 2011, Cheryl Schirillo brought together a grassroots group of entrepreneurs, artists, business people, educators, designers, and community leaders started meeting in downtown Winston-Salem, NC to brainstorm the Project.  As of November  over 200 people are directly involved in the project and we’ve collected thousands of dreams.
