The theme for the 2016 edition of Wild Onions is: Dreams and Shadows
Dreams are those fantasies we have in the middle of the night that keep us hopeful for the next day. They are those ideas that start small and inspire us to make our lives meaningful. Dreams are the wings behind our aspirations that give us a reason to take chances and take flight. But where there is the potential to dream, there is also the potential for nightmares. What are those doubts, those fears, and those experiences that exist in the shadows? And how do we overcome those nightmares so that we can step out of the dark and attain our true goals? Whether our dreams are the kind that take place in sleep or the kind that influence our actions during the day, the dreams and shadows we experience hold an undeniable power that can change us, our future, and our world.
