Camp sponsors.jpg


It was a packed week. A dozen local art and design professionals interfaced with the students, facilitating creative expressions through a variety of mediums. (See below for full list of participating professionals.) We took walking field trips to an art museum, architecture studio and future site of a multidisciplinary arts space. The week culminated in a Public Reception & Show at NorthStar Church. The camp was free for students and included meals. We thank our creative community for making this happen, especially the sponsorship from ACTIVATE NC, Szostak Design, Ninth St. Bakery, Mediterranean Deli, and Luna.

Freedom Dreaming is an opportunity to visualize the future that we want to live in, and harness the necessary tools and resources to actively move that dream toward a reality. These principles were developed by the Downtown Brooklyn Arts Management Fellows.
