“Your life is already artful-waiting, just waiting, for you to make it art.”

Toni Morrison

Dream BIG Contest 2023

Dr. King had an incredible vision built on principles of justice, equity, and love. In honor of his memory, the Lyric asks Baltimore City and Baltimore County students in grades 5th to 12th to create artworks based on their big dream for a better world. Students are eligible to enter the contest with a 300-word essay; a one-page poem; a piece of visual art; or a 60-second edited video. This year’s final adjudicator is renown dancer, actress, teacher, and storyteller, Maria Broom.  Selected finalists will share their work on the Lyric’s historic stage on Thursday, April 26, 2023 and receive a prize package that includes cash awards and a laptop computer. Entries to the contest are accepted from January 16, 2023 until March 31, 2023.
