What is Dream Melodies Art Contest?
Dream Melodies Art Contest is an art contest that was inspired by an idea of merging music and painting during the writing phase of the book ‘Dream Melodies-Voyage to Opera’. First Art Contest is established in 2020. The main aims of ‘Dream Melodies’ Art Contest are to promote interest in opera as an art form, support art students in their creative processes and generate diversity in a country’s art and cultural fabric. The participants are asked to watch a predetermined opera and express their feelings on either the whole, a particular scene, or certain songs and melodies that struck a chord with them (whether they understand the meaning of the words or not), from that opera. They are also expected to write down their experiences and feelings when they watched the opera.
The art contest is non-profit. It is held to help Academy of Fine Arts and Art Teachers students grow and support them financially. You may support the contest on Patreon patreon.com/dreammelodies pages, you can see our dreams, aims and patron gifts.
