Commissioned project for the 2013 Come Out Festival

Hovering above the Future Gardens Exhibition at the Adelaide Festival Centre, Inflatable Dreams was a floating world of inflatable sculptures for children and families to explore. These sculptures were designed by students from ten South Australian schools based on their dreams for the future.

Students also had a hand in creating smaller inflatable sculptures that surrounded their Big Dream image.

OSCA artists conducted workshops in the schools to assist the students to design and build their inflatable dreams. OSCA then designed and installed the exhibition of inflatable sculptures on the Northern Plaza at the Adelaide Festival Centre, complementing the Future Gardens Exhibition in the Terraces underneath.
