Each annual DreamWeek Summit comprises a series of events designed with a singular purpose in mind: to foster the free exchange of ideas on universal issues affecting the human race. The aim is to invite all to participate in an open forum where real-world issues are discussed in a well-balanced manner, with the understanding that the truest voices will always prevail. Events can take a variety of forms, from symposiums, panel discussions and debates to film screenings, concerts and art exhibits.
This year marks a big milestone as DreamWeek approaches its 10th anniversary, reflecting on a decade of dreams, the kind of dreams we aspire to live every day, and the determination to use our collective resources as an investment of a community in its future. Since its inception, DreamWeek has presented over 1300+ events in partnership, 130,000+ attendees, & over 400 local leading organizations, small businesses and nonprofits.
DreamWeek is an annual summit spanning 16 days in January. The summit consists of a series of partner-hosted events that promote civil dialogue on issues concerning tolerance, equality, and diversity.

“DreamWeek is one of the most forward-looking and iconic developments in San Antonio in the last decade.” – Ron Nirenberg, Mayor – City of San Antonio
“Herald a new world – one of tolerance of different perspectives, equality of opportunity, and respect for the diversity of the genius within us.”- Shokare Nakpodia, Founder – DreamVoice, LLC
“We must know where we come from to understand where we need to go. As a society, it is important that we continue to walk together in the example set by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and that we do not turn back. We must keep the dream alive, never give up hope and always have faith.” – James Howard, Board Chair – San Antonio ISD
“I’d like to thank (DreamVoice, LLC President) Shokare Nakpodia for this genius idea to bring together the MLK events into a DreamWeek with a universal reach for everyone in our city and everyone in our world. This is one of the most important things that happens in our city. Sometimes we think we have made a lot of progress, sometimes it’s five steps forward, and two steps back. But we have made so much progress, and yet there is much more to be done.” – Carmen Tafolla, former San Antonio Poet Laureate
