We're mapping a city by its dreams

Chicago is a world-class city with top-rated tourist attractions, an artistic vitality and cultural vibrancy second to none, and is a hub of diversity, innovation, and excellence. It is already "on the map" for too many reasons to name.  Here, we are putting Chicago's dreams on the map.  All 3million+ of them, from all 77+ communities--we want to know each neighborhood by the dreams on its streets and in the hearts of its people.   Starting with yours.



Dreams are pictures of a future reality you want to pull into the present. You may not know how to get there, make it happen, or take the next step, but your heart knows what "could be" even when it's hard to detach from "what is."

Select which category best describes the most impossible dream on your heart, or create your own. (Example: a "relational" dream might be "to reconcile with my best friend." A "creative" dream might be to "support myself through my art" or "have my own studio.")
