helping artists connect, share and create
what we do
driven by our own need to meet and engage with artists from all creative spectrums, at artyficial dreams we aim to create a virtual as well as physical community where artists and creatives connect, present their work, expand their network, share ideas, knowledge and expertise.
we are doing so via:
listen to artists and creatives talking about art, culture and the creative process, presenting their projects and giving their theoretical and practical insight into the creative industries.
join an intimate, friendly session where all artists present their career and projects. your chance to discuss relevant and current concerns or difficulties with a small group of likeminded people.
