In 2019 Dream Of Life took part in Rich Mix Takeover 2018 with our event:

London - A City of Dreams?

We produced a a temporary world of sound and light for an immersive audience experience to hear the voices and thoughts of young women living in the city.

The event including live music and spoken word, surreal paintings, mysterious sounds, and short films. We ran a creative workshop for the audience to write down their dreams in a ‘Dream Kiosk’ and together transform a map of London into A City of Dreams.

Dream of Life consulted extensively with our core group of young women and their families. From this consultation we responded to the feedback of wanting to participate in the TakeOver youth festival at Rich Mix to gain experience in a new venue beyond Spotlight which we achieved and was very successful in helping the group to gain confidence. 

Rich Mix were keen to work with us and build a link with Spotlight in the same borough but geographically quite far apart. We consulted with Rich Mix about the theme and scale of our event Rich Mix asked if we could produce an event encapsulating the hidden voices of young female creatives in the city of london.


Project was delivered by Dream Of Life, funded by National Lottery Awards for All.

What’s it like to live in a fast paced city that never sleeps?

If we’re all so busy all the time, what happens to our creativity?

How do we find a moment to tune into our inner self?
