Join Citi Performing Arts Center’s Education Team for a series of empowering interactive readings of Kadir Nelson’s I Have a Dream picture book inspired by the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Led by Citi Center’s Teaching Artist Toni Bee, this free event will feature interactive audience performances, interactive improve games, and an art-making activity! Participants can create their own Dream Doves or Dream Self-Portraits to hang around the tent and are invited to contribute to a group poem about their dreams! Exclusively for ArtWeek, these interactive story readings will happen during the Berklee College of Music’s artistic block party, the Berklee Beantown Jazz Festival which has delighted tens of thousands with a host of jazz, Latin, blues, and groove acts. Families are entertained with face painting, inflatables, photos, and an instrument petting zoo.
Each reading will run approximately 30 minutes and take place around 1PM, 2PM, 3PM, and 4PM.
