School of machines, making & make–believe

Hello World!

School of Machines, Making & Make-Believe is about reimagining what education could look like in the modern world. We're an organisation dedicated to the imaginative exploration of art, technology, design, and human connection. We’re passionate about interactivity and storytelling. We enjoy learning and playing with tools that make our brains and our dreams come to life! Wanna join us?

We curate experimental formats for learning, a creative work-holiday of sorts. We run several intensive full-time four-week programs in Berlin, Germany, each with well-known instructors and a unique topic and focus.

We've started taking our programs to other countries! Currently, we're running a four-week program in China and this May you'll find us in Galway, Ireland. We're excited to expand our reach even further with collaborations in 2019 and beyond! If you and your organisation would like to work with us, get in touch!

We invite creative people of all kinds -- artists, teachers, technologists, makers, engineers, designers, the curious, people passionate about learning and creativity, those who secretly desire to create something meaningful -- all are encouraged to participate. Special thanks to Sofia Crespo for contributing this month's background image.
