The clearance day can be a joyful event, where the ’lomis’ the local inhabitants study and create together. On our actions youngsters who hate school can also learn the tools of arts and those can also experience the joy of art, who keep off the cultural institutions. The youngsters make the public spaces lively, create value from the waste and share their thoughts on their blog with the world.

‘Dreams of Junk’ is the first social-cultural initiative in Hungary that aims its activities at the ‘lomis', Hungary's informal collectors and collectors of used goods. Together with local young people who live in the neighbourhoods, they produce art in public spaces from (no longer) used items. Shared learning as part of such public activities creates a stable framework for social groups to come closer together that would otherwise not have anything to do with each other. The project also allows for a change of image: the ‘lomis' are collecting future works of art, rather than picking up rubbish – and that´s definitely innovative.
