Our Organisation


Dreaming Methods is One to One Development Trust's in-house digital storytelling studio 


Established in 1999 by digital writer/artist Andy Campbell, Dreaming Methods is the award-winning studio of UK-based arts organisation One to One Development Trust.

From narrative-driven games and educational tools to Virtual Reality poetry, Dreaming Methods' core interest is in how digital art and technology can be used to tell compelling stories and encourage reading and literacy in an age where TV, online media and video games are dominant mediums.

We have a 30 year history of producing ground-breaking digital work. With a core team of staff, an active Board of Trustees, and a dedicated team of highly skilled freelance artists, we work collaboratively with communities to co-produce projects creating ownership and legacy. We often work with marginalised communities and groups who are on the periphery of the mainstream arts offer. 

See examples of our work in our portfolio and contact us for more information.
