The Rooms
Wanda Luna founded The Dream Room Project in 2009 (La Sala De Los Sueños Inc). While her art career was just beginning to take off, she wanted to make a meaningful impact to lessen the burden of children in her hometown.
The formative experience of her life were filled with uncertainly in Chile, her birth place during the Pinochet era then followed with difficult family dynamics in Canada. Those difficult childhood years when she could have easily perished or suffered lasting psychological damage left a lasting mark on her, and led to an idea of turning a disaster of unthinkable proportions into an exhilarating adventure.
In 2014 Wanda was nominated for the YMCA Woman Of Distinction Awards ( Arts Category) & the RBC Making a Difference Award


"I always say that I have purpose in my life now because of those little souls that have shared their courage," "It always makes you believe you are stronger than you think you are." Wanda Luna
The artist
Most of the Dream Rooms have a strong art component and Wanda is currently the sole artist. It is our hope that with more funding and donor dollars we can employ more artists. More artists translates to more dream rooms. Our dream is to be able to do 10 times more rooms, so every child who is struggling has a safe space to dream of brighter days.
We feel so privileged to be let into people's homes during what can often be one of the toughest times for a family

The concept is simple, and effective.
Sometimes, we are able to help with bedroom furniture.
The kids work with the artists to create the room of their dreams.
Often, bedrooms are the last safe place many children know. And The Dream Room Project
strives to make these truly special places where children can heal from the traumas of their lives.
It's a little time and effort that makes a big difference in the lives of local children. It's a great feeling to know you're a part of something so transformational.
