Relax, Play, Create.
The Dream Machine is a manifestation of a powerful vision born in the depths of the Amazonian jungle. Its founder, inspired by the transformative power of holistic community healing, music, sound therapy, and traditional medicines, set out to create a space where people could experience these profound healing practices without having to travel to the other side of the world.
Now, nestled in the heart of Glasgow, at 257 London Road, The Dream Machine stands as a testament to the transformative power of creative technology. It is a unique and inviting space that welcomes anyone seeking to escape the mundane realities of everyday life and embark on a journey of inner exploration and discovery.
With many more voyages ahead, The Dream Machine invites you to join us on this transformative journey. Let us take you on a journey of self-discovery, healing, and growth, and help you unlock the full potential of your mind, body, and soul. The possibilities are endless, and the rewards are life-changing. Come and experience the magic of The Dream Machine for yourself!
The Dream Machine is a collective consisting of two branches: a non-profit Community Interest Company (CIC) and a Charity. The CIC provides tailored creative spaces and equipment to a range of professionals, including artists, educators, and musicians. The profits generated by the CIC are used to support the charity branch, which funds projects aimed at fostering creativity and supporting our community in overcoming the challenges they face.
At The Dream Machine, we're passionate about creativity in all its forms. We believe that addressing today's challenges, such as the mental health crisis, climate change, and poverty, requires innovative and creative solutions. To support creativity, we work in various fields, including traditional arts and crafts, video production, interactive digital arts, and sound production. We're always looking to expand our horizons, which is why we're eager to collaborate with you. Whether you're a creative professional or simply passionate about innovation, we invite you to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Creative individuals who aspire to accomplish exciting things are always welcome at The Dream Machine!
WHAT WE DO
Provide Bespoke Creative Spaces and Equiptment.
We have two spaces to offer. The first is the Dream Room, an adaptable multi-sensory venue with various uses such as hosting audio-visual experiences, practising yoga, video art installations and events like small audio-visual gigs and parties. The second space is the Dream Lab, a perfect space to host educational or creative workshops, have a music rehearsal or host a relaxed boiler room type gig. We also have a large selection of audio-visual equipment that can be used.
The Dream Room
The Dream Room is an adaptable multi-sensory venue. By controlling its mood lighting, underfloor heating, surround sound, and immersive projectable walls, we can create a one-of-a-kind space to fit your bespoke needs and purposes.
The Dream Lab
The Dream Lab space is suitable for classroom-based environments such as workshops, masterclasses and craft sessions. Its versatility means it can also double up as a great music rehearsal space.
Arts, Design and Music Workshops.
We conduct online and in-person creative workshops that explore a range of creative practices such as AV technology, painting and music production. However, we are always trying to expand what we have to offer. Primarily we support participants to have fun, meet new people and gain new skills. We believe that doing this enriches participants lives and wellbeing in a multitude of ways by providing:
Enjoyment through catharsis or relaxation during creative practice.
Social interaction within workshop activities.
Newfound confidence from the skills gained.
By supporting our participants in these ways, we hope to encourage happier and healthier lifestyles and people.
Research and Innovation
We consider knowledge to be power here. When it comes to progressing the arts and ourselves, the more we know, the better we can support people. When we work in our community, we conduct research to drive innovation forward within our organisation and the services we provide. This helps us in addressing critical issues in society like the mental health crisis, wellbeing, loneliness and isolation, education/upskilling, and supporting local creativity.
