The Dream Flag Project began in 2003 in sixth grade English classes at the Agnes Irwin School, a K-12 school for girls in suburban Philadelphia. Students studied the poetry of Langston Hughes and then wrote their own dream poems. They printed them on cloth, decorated them with art, and connected them all to clotheslines. Modeled after Nepalese Prayer flags, the Dream Flags were meant to share positive hopes with the world.
