Featuring visual art and performances from the amazing teaching artists of DREAMS of Wilmington, a nonprofit dedicated to serving youth in need through high-quality, free-of-charge arts programming.

 

DREAMS is thrilled to be partnering with long-time supporter Thalian Hall once more to co-present this fantastic show. Thalian’s Executive Director Tony Rivenbark says, “I think that the Dreams organization is one of the

most important not-for- profit organizations in New Hanover County. Teaching the Arts and mentoring through creativity to young people is one of the most positive things that can be done for future generations. I have nothing

but the highest regard for the tireless creative staff of Dreams and the success that Dreams has achieved since its establishment over 20 years ago. It is vital for our community that Dreams continues to flourish.”

           

DREAMS’ teaching artists are gifted instructors, true—but they are so much more. They are role models and mentors for the youth they serve, many of whom live in extreme poverty and would not otherwise be able

to experience the many benefits of artistic engagement. Through their example as working artists, they inspire their students to gain self-confidence, self-esteem, leadership skills and the courage to follow their own dreams.

           

Join emcees Rhonda Bellamy and Tony Rivenbark on March 9th to celebrate the talent of these amazing teaching artists and get a glimpse of what led them to pursue their creative path—who inspired and guided them,

the way that they in turn inspire and guide their students today.
