Voices: Turning words into action
Peter Farmer at work Peter and the Dream Project

Peter Farmer, 24, has been running the Dream project in The Meadows for the last two years.

Dream is designed to encourage and equip inner-city young people to fulfil their potential and to realise their hidden gifts and talents in a Christian environment.

It's entirely voluntary.

Peter first got involved with youth work two and a half years ago when he started visiting St. Saviours Church in the Meadows.

Dream unfolded when some young people from the church's Youth Club expressed an interest in drumming.

Peter has a background in Performance Arts and so he started teaching drumming and rapping on a Saturday morning.

Dream has several elements:
- Dream Catchers... a project where Peter goes into primary schools and does visual and performing arts with the pupils.

- Deep Dream... an event that happens every other Saturday at St. Saviours Church. Youngsters come and try drumming, rapping and hold talent competitions in a cafe/club environment.

In the future Peter would like to set up a Dream Theatre in The Meadows as well as a Dream School where children can learn more creative, non-curricular skills.

Peter's objective is for youngsters to focus on the positive aspects of life.
