WHO WE ARE
DREAMWEEK JAX is a celebration of the City of Jacksonville, Fla. as the city of dreamers, occurring each January during the week of the national Martin Luther King Jr holiday and National Day of Service. The mission of DREAMWEEK JAX is to showcase Jacksonville Florida as the Dream City of the millennia in culture, arts, business, and social progress. This recognition and celebration of Jacksonville’s evolution as a dream city since its founding in 1562 is long overdue. DREAMWEEK JAX was co-founded by Dr. V Brooks Dunbar and Senior Master Sergeant Kenneth Roy Dunbar Jr. (U.S. Air Force, Retired) as a way to elevate individuals, groups and organizations in downtown Jacksonville, Duval County, and the First Coast by promoting community engagement and cross-communication.
DREAMWEEK INC is a registered 501 (c)3 nonprofit agency with a mission to promote social progress and community engagement through the lens of Dr. King's dream. Although social progress themes may change each year, program themes have included youth, education, health, women, entrepreneurship, and community safety.
