The Dream Philly Festival centers on an exhibit of thousands of student-created Dreamline Banners filling the Cherry Street Pier with hope, positive energy, and inspiration. Using the Pier’s 11” x 7” foot digital screen, we’ll connect Philadelphia through a live broadcast to community voices and dream art from around the world – from Cairo to Belize!

Participate! Make your own Dreamline Banner to add to our year-long traveling exhibit to inspire youth and encourage communities to not only dream, but work to manifest them!

Experience the Dream Spiral, an immersive installation of dream-inspired words and art on fabric from students around the world, designed by Cherry Street artist Victoria Prizzia, of Habithèque Inc.
