Dreamweek, Inc., concluded its fifth year of celebrating art, culture, business and social progress in Jacksonville with a pop up artist’s gallery and a creative conversation with local Artist Alisha Lewis of Brown Girls Unite.

Lewis spoke to tenants at Beaver Street Enterprise Center (BSEC) who gathered to discuss how the arts can support education, personal growth, and social progress. BGU offers artistic opportunities through workshops and classes for all ages.

Dreamweek Jax 2023 kicked off the week to celebrate social progress through the lens of Dr. Kings Dream. Although social progress themes may change each year, program themes have included youth, education, health, women, entrepreneurship and community safety. The mission of Dreamweek JAx is to showcase Jacksonville, Florida as the Dream City of millennia in cultures, arts, business and social progress.
