Dreamland is a safe space for Queers, Women, and Trans*folk
Dreamland’s mission is to provide a cultural alternative for artists and patrons of the Arts in the Greater Buffalo area that nourishes avant-garde philosophies in various artistic mediums. Using models of various cooperatives (co-op housing, “D.I.Y” and punk spaces, art collectives); Dreamland strives to be an inclusive safe space, that is both accessible and comfortable to minorities (sexual, gender-based, racial, physical) and those of disadvantageous economic abilities.
A major example of Dreamland’s accessibility lies in its donation-based events. This allows the “turn-no-one-away” policy that we’ve found creates a strong sense of community and allows people who would normally be daunted by cost–to experience a wide range of the arts.
Dreamland was formerly operating out of 387 Franklin Street but is now looking for a more permanent home. In the meantime, we’ll be popping up at a gallery or art space near you. Learn more about the events that triggered this move.
