Dream Flag Project 10th Anniversary Celebration - Philadelphia

Event Date/Time

May 4, 2013
11:00 am until 1:30 pm


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.

Over the past 10 years, the project has spread to other schools and even other countries. In honor of their 10th anniversary, the Dream Flag Project will host their annual poetry reading and flag exhibition, including musical performances & live video chats with participants in other parts of the world!
