Creative Play

Build your miniature avatar and share your dream at The Dream Maker’s Kiosk. Designed by students of Lansvale Public School with artist Howard Matthew, this mobile art unit is dedicated to the ancient Dream Makers. 

Some say that we will never see the likes of the old Dream Makers again, roaming from town to town with their tiny strange kiosks. You may, however, find them in unexpected places.

Create your own dream and offer it back to the kiosk or hold onto it as a keep sake.
