What is CONCRETE DREAMS? It’s a temporary public art project that involves the public in Washington DC and Katakhali Village, Bangladesh. CONCRETE DREAMS is led by Monica Jahan Bose in collaboration with light artist Robin Bell and will drape cotton saris and project images and poetry on the facade of the DC Arts Center, 2438 18th Street, NW, Washington DC. The duration of the installation will be three days in May 2021. There will also be small movable sculptures or “steles” on the sidewalk with poetry phrases written on them. The public is invited to join zoom and outdoor workshops led by Monica Jahan Bose and co-facilitated by artist Maps Glover in Fall/Winter 2020 and Spring 2021 to compose poetry and art on themes of the pandemic, race, gender, and climate justice. These poems will be placed on the saris, used in projections, and in the movable sculptures. All materials will be supplied.

ASL interpretation provided. Please email if you need ASL or other language interpretation or any other accommodation.

This project is supported by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities’ Public Art Building Communities Grant Program.
