Dreaming Methods present their brand-new immersive experience, which combines literature and gaming to navigate through a future world adversely affected by climate change.

Dreaming Methods are an award-winning creative studio, led by artists Andy Campbell and Judi Alston and based at The Art House. Their aim is to engage people of all ages with timely and important contemporary global issues through their unique and compelling fictional experiences. With a strong focus on reimagining writing and literacy, audiences can interact in their immersive worlds, driving the narrative to make changes.

The Abandoned Library is set 80 years from now in the North of the UK and narrates a derelict library that has been affected by years of catastrophic environmental impact. Audiences are invited to enter the fictional experience and interact in their immersive world. Dreaming Methods focus on reimagining writing and literacy, and present a genre of immersive storytelling that is incredibly powerful in engaging with people of all ages, in accessible ways. Players will be guided by an AI Librarian to ultimately construct a better outcome for this work, which acts as a provocation to get people thinking about climate change and the consequences of not acting now.
