DREAM Complex // Youth Arts Program

What is DREAM COMPLEX?
DREAM COMPLEX is a travelling interactive
after school arts program. Bringing a diverse learning experience to inner-city youth, we introduce the thought of "artpreneurship". This allows the youth to explore their creativity through arts such as dance, film, entrepreneurship and along with components of spirituality.

An EXCLUSIVE Look Into DREAM Complex:





OUR MISSION:
To create a social movement that inspires our youth to consciously think outside of their box, search for their passion, and build their community and the economy. The learning experience our youth gains, can and will literally change their lives by inspiring their God given gifts within them. By creating a positive and safe environment to express themselves, it will help ignite the youth’s entrepreneurial spirits.

Why WE SERVE the youth?
DREAM Complex’s goal is to foster a commitment to young people that will promote prosocial friendships, develop strong interpersonal skills, reassert a sense of hope in their futures and the future generations to come.

Only through personal relationships can a sense of individual responsibility be reestablished that will give youth the commitment to follow through on the path to adulthood with a sense of pride and accomplishment.

Art, in its various forms, are the gateways into making this happen...seamlessly.

Our keys to SUCCESS:

School Connection
Student Engagement
Community Engagement
Innovative Educational Program
Proper Training
Expansion Goals // 20 Year plan


Given that DC is the first of its kind, its early design phase demands an innovative approach. A single person, no matter how successful or passionate, cannot single-handedly fund and sustain an innovative youth after school program. The DREAM Team hopes that an equally passionate public will join us in contributing to D.R.E.A.M Complex.
