12 Experiences of The___Dream
No keynotes, no slides, no panels, no screens, no name badges, and not even a fixed schedule—our 2023 festival, The___Dream, will be one for the books.
This June in Portugal, we’ll offer six outdoor stages with decentralized programming and countless experiences that will bring you to life on all levels, from the intellectual and emotional to the physical and spiritual. Namely...
