Seattle Art Museum, Plestcheeff Auditorium, 1300 1st Ave, Seattle, WA 98101

The idea of the American Dream predates the founding of our nation. Its complex trajectory illuminates the contradiction, tension and potential contained within our individual and collective dreams and experiences. In celebration of the life, legacy and vision of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Pecha Kucha Seattle in partnership with the Seattle Art Museum, 4Culture, Arcade, AIA Seattle, Design in Public, Human Condition Magazine and the Seattle Public Library present PKN SEA vol. 74: American Dreams - Empowering New Visions for a Changing America. The event unites inspiring community leaders from across our region to explore their unique relationship to the American Dream and share their understanding of its relevance to our broader community, challenging us to reconsider what it means to be American as we reach the quarter-mark of the 21st Century.

Join us at SAM on Friday, January 18th, 2019 as we take a moment to dream together.
