Dreamline Philadelphia Festival 2024

June 9
Location: Cherry Street Pier
Time: 1 pm to 5 pm

Join us on Sunday, June 9, for the Dreamline Philly Festival 2024 at Cherry Street Pier. The festival culminates in a year-long program connecting students across Philadelphia and worldwide as they share their dreams for positive change and personal growth. The event is free and open to the public, and all ages are welcome.

This event, free and open to the public, begins at 1:00 pm with student-created dream art from Fishtown to Taiwan on display in 7-foot high “Dream Booths” and along the Pier’s 150-foot windows looking out onto the Delaware River. Attendees can participate in hands-on, dream-related activities like button-making, printmaking, and planting seedlings.  Live performances from the stage feature family-friendly songs of ukulele vocalist “Meet the Bug.”

At 3:00, the Dream Stage Program begins with a talk by special guest Kim Macharia, Executive Director of the Space Prize Foundation, who inspires and supports young women in their careers in space. Then, listen as 3rd through 6th graders from the School District of Philadelphia take the stage to declare their dreams alongside other regional school participants. Students from as far away as Egypt will join via Zoom on the Pier’s jumbo screen.

Enjoy an afternoon of inspiration, joy, and hope. More information and FREE tickets are available at program.dreamline.org/event24.

About Dreamline
Dreamline’s mission is to shift the focus of education toward purposeful life in the community. Their activity-based school programs address the universal need for hope, belonging, and purpose, and their train-the-trainers model builds a network of teachers that have guided Dreamline students in 47 countries and most states of the US.

Dreamline intentionally engages students in examining their values and dreams for change. Then, they create a Dream Banner, an expression in art, and the words of a dream to share with the world. Attached to a line, they form Dreamlines, which are displayed in public and celebrated at local and global events.

Dreamline is a Philadelphia-based nonprofit organization founded in 2016 to support the expansion of a globally reaching classroom project developed by its founder, Jeffrey Harlan. Dreamline’s most recent Board initiatives are focused on helping communities in the School District of Philadelphia through grants from organizations such as the Penn Treaty Special Services District funding Adaire Elementary and Moffet Elementary in programs that build and measure changes in student empathy, belonging, and agency.
