Yes, you can see it here! Live from the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, PA USA.  (And on your phone too!)

Just click on the link below at 11:30 EST (time zone converson) to hear poets of all ages read their Dream Flag poems while musician Tim Motzer creates a gentle web of accompaniment with looping guitar improvisation. 

The program, hosted by high school volunteers from The Agnes Irwin School, will include a brief address from Kerry Sautner, Vice President of Education and Visitor Experience at the National Constitution Center. This is followed by readings from representative poets from all attending schools along with some video readings sent in by schools in other locations.

Each group is invited to have up to three representative poets read their Dream Flag work. It is a fast-moving collage of dreams that represents the more than 10,000 student dreamers who have connected their Dream Flags around the world this year.
