The Dream Factory is a non-profit initiative to coproduce new meeting places and ways of working to inspire our networked society to express its full potential.

We want to encourage new collaborative social spaces which connect our virtual networks, worlds and innovations with real physical spaces which are not about consumption or production but about the meeting of minds and hearts for our creative and social good.

The vision and purpose of the Dream Factory is to inspire a permanent cooperative collaboration space for individuals to mentor and inspire each other. By connecting ideas from this space to the coworking and hackerspaces of the City, we hope to encourage collaborative entrepreneurship and inspire a self-sufficient local economy.

See this Wired Sussex blog about the full story behind the inspiration for The Dream Factory.
