The Show is ON!
Celebrate the power of dreams with this free program on Sunday, June 4th in the 500-foot art space of Cherry Street Pier surrounded by sky and water! Or tune in to the livestream!
DREAM BANNER BONANZA
.. IS UNDER WAY to fill the space of Cherry Street Pier with Dream Booths – 7-foot high free standing structures, each with a giant inflatable globe in the center and surrounded by Dream Banners. And there will be a 200-foot Dream Wall as well! You’ll see original student work from places like Shawmont Elementary in the Roxborough section of Philly alongside works from Madagascar, Haiti, and beyond!
..ARE LINED UP to surround us with energetic sound. The Dream Stage will first host Meet The Bug (aka Cariahbel Azemar) with her enchanting blend of vocal dexterity and ukulele fun! Then Tom Krumm will take the stage with his virtuosic jazz violin standards and originals backed by his own looping guitar riffs along with fellow Berklee College of Music grad and master Afro-Caribbean percussionist Nate Harlan. And when the students take the stage to read out their dreams, Temple Music scholar Nick Demkowicz will weave a magical spell with his vibraphone improvisations responding to student words and images, tying them together in a collage of hope and vision.
…IS SET with a variety of hands-on activities that all can enjoy free and with materials provided. From PLANT THE FUTURE seedling planting activity (provided by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society) to the WEAR YOUR DREAM button making table to the JOIN THE DREAMERS short-form Dream Banner Making table to the PRINT YOUR VISION fabric printing workshop (and others in the works), busy hands will make dreams live long after the day.
INSPIRATION EXPLOSION & LIVESTREAM
… WILL HAPPEN ON STAGE at 2:00 pm (US Eastern) when our Livestream starts and special guest speaker Ryan Harris takes the mic to tell his story of how dreams and drive make change, as he has demonstrated so powerfully in the North Philadelphia neighborhood where he grew up. Then Dreamline students will line up to read their Dream Banners out loud, underscored by Nick’s live improvisations on vibraphones. Above the stage on the Pier’s video wall, students from remote locations will join in, adding their dreams to the flow of hope. The inspiration will keep growing as we round up with the Dreamline Song. (AND… we don’t know yet.. but there may be a big reveal as well.)
Whether you’re near or far – whether you can come down to Cherry Street Pier on June 4 at noon or join our livestream at 2 – you won’t want to miss out on this uplifting afternoon of connection and purpose.

FROM THE BOARD
Making Dreams Happen
Dreamline’s nonprofit Board has determined that we need to raise $15,000 in our 2023 Annual Campaign to continue making our Dream Path SEL curriculum and programming available to schools in 2023-24, keep up the momentum of reconnecting with our pre-COVID community, and scaling our Urban Pilot Program. We have reached 75% of that goal and invite you to help us reach 100%!
On June 4th we will announce the results of our 2023 Annual Campaign at the Dream Philly Festival and thank our donors.
The Dream Path SEL curriculum experience intentionally develops the empathy, belonging, and agency which are critical for positive changes in school climate needed in so many places today.
The Board invites you to make a contribution to support positive school climate change in 2023-24, putting concrete tools in the hands of teachers who will make a difference.
You can LEARN MORE about the impact of your gift on the Annual Campaign Page or GIVE NOW through our Eventbrite page where you make a donation and receive a ticket to the Dream Philly Festival.
DREAM PATH SEL in ’23-24
We anticipate that as we meet our nonprofit funding goals, Dream Path SEL Short Form curriculum will continue to be a free subscription offering in the 2023-24 school year. Please look for details in upcoming emails as to the subscription cost for the Dream Path SEL Full Program (offered at no cost this year.) It will vary depending on your school’s location and Title I status.
Please contact us for further information as you look toward plans and budgets for next year.
