On January 31st, 2013 we will gather to celebrate and support Dreaming Out Loud’s efforts to combat food deserts, provide safe spaces for youth, and strengthen communities through innovative social enterprises. “When Dreams Emerge: A Celebration and Fundraiser” is a night of fun, inspiration and affirmation. The Edison Pepco Gallery (701 9th Street NW) will host this occasion from 6-9pm, as we honor special guests who have contributed to the organization over our four years of making change in the District.
We are fortunate to have the White House News Photographers Association’s exhibit entitled “Executive Functioning: Through the Eyes of History” on display during our event. In honor of the inauguration, the exhibit features photographs of American presidents dating back to the association’s founding in1921. The night will also feature a screening of “Origin of Dreams,” a short documentary about our ethical framework called the Adinkra Symbol Ethics Mirror. We will also have raffle items, live painting from Mas Paz, and a poetry performance.
Lite hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served. There is a suggested donation of $10, but we will not turn anyone away.
Register today to help us further our efforts in 2013 as we:
- Launch a new farmers market location in Ward 7 serving nearly 3,000 people without equal access to health food choices.
- Continue building community and serve 5 public housing communities in Ward 6.
- Deepen our impact through youth programming.
- Begin urban farming projects near our markets.
We look forward to seeing you!
The Dreaming Out Loud Team
