Three million hearts, awake and dreaming.


Dream Chicago is sharing love and hope one dream, one dreamer, one city at a time.

“The Wright Brothers didn’t have a pilot’s license.”


Since 2012, we’ve been on an adventure, conducting our “community dream assessment” throughout Chicago’s beautiful and diverse neighborhoods and suburbs. We started with a single question:

What’s your dream, friend?

Our strategies include mapping Chicago neighborhoods by dreams, and then partnering with dreams and dreamers through a variety of offerings.

Our first set of keys came from Chicago’s Fulton Street Collective in January 2012, where we housed our our inaugural Dream Chicago “Dream Studio,” open to all, and where we also host Master Classes and Dream Camps. Since that time, we have expanded to include dream space in Chicago Public Schools, social service organizations throughout the city, a renowned recording studio, and faith-based organizations.

And the doors continue to open wide.
