Awaken the senses and stimulating ideas about sleep and dreams through live music and art, scientific stories, and original compositions.


Sleep is an essential part of the human experience. When sleep is compromised, the body and mind suffer. When it flows, we feel refreshed and clear. Sleep even builds new neural pathways. With sleep comes a rich landscape of dreams that enlighten, frighten, and delve into the bizarre, all swirling in our subconscious. Sleep and dreams come alive in music, art, and storytelling—from lullabies to visual masterpieces to personal accounts of epiphanies.

Time & Location: Join us on Tuesday, October 18, 2022, from 6–7:30 PM PT for “Sleep & Dreams: Music, Neuroscience & Stories of Slumber" presented at the Caroline H. Hume Concert Hall at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. This free event is made possible through the support of the host groups and their contributors.
