DreamWeek's 16-day summit centered on civil and civic engagement features a host of events across San Antonio.

Inspired by the teachings of Martin Luther King Jr., DreamWeek is held “to foster the exchange of ideas” in an environment “where real-world issues are presented and nurtured.” The 10th annual event will include symposiums, panel discussions, film screenings, art exhibits and musical performances.



Selected works by artist Jose Villalobos will be on exhibit during his show “Joto Fronterizo/Border Faggot.” Raised on the U.S./Mexico border in El Paso, Villalobos is known for his artistic protests of toxic masculinity through performance, sculpture and fashion (Free, 7 p.m.–11 p.m., Jan. 15, Brick at Blue Star, 108 Blue Star).

The history of civil rights in San Antonio will be on display during the exhibition “Piecing Together a Story of Courage” through historic images, recordings and interviews (Free, 10:30 a.m.-noon, Jan. 15, Instituto Cultural de México, 600 Hemisfair).

African American culture will be celebrated through music in a concert presented by Musical Bridges Around the World, where featured artists from the documentary The Quilt will be in attendance (Free, 7 p.m., Jan. 23, San Fernando Cathedral, 115 Main Plaza).

All events are subject to change. Times and locations vary, January 13-30, (210) 444-2315, dreamweek.org.
