Hello!

The School of Machines, Making & Make-Believe is an organisation dedicated to the imaginative exploration of art, technology, design, and human connection. We develop unique programs to teach the latest technologies while simultaneously questioning their usage, the world around us, and ourselves. 

Technology is fascinating but, more importantly, who are we and what do we care about? We explore these answers together by learning and playing with tools that make our brains and our dreams come to life! Wanna join us?
