Building artists, Building community, Building dreams to change the world.
DreamYard collaborates with Bronx youth, families and schools to build pathways to equity and opportunity through the arts.
Vibrant communities are sustained and retained by the people who call that community home. This vision is intergenerational and equitable for all people. From youth to elders, leadership, access, and decision-making power are dispersed among a spectrum of identities within communities.
The values guiding our work are activate, create, connect, and nurture.

Our offerings support young people in exploring their identities and community through nationally recognized arts and social justice curricula. Students from elementary to high school through college and their families are guided by the core values of Activate, Create, Connect, and Nurture as they develop a confident and creative community.
As our City grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, we are working closely with our Bronx community members to provide multifaceted support for our students, families, teachers and schools.
