Bold Idea 

Transform Bronx public schools and communities through the power of project-based arts learning.


DreamYard programs develop artistic voice, nurture young peoples’ desire to make change and cultivate the skills necessary to reach positive goals. We believe that young people in the Bronx need a continuous set of supports to help them towards positive outcomes as they navigate their educational pathway. We have every expectation that through offering sustained and meaningful supports our youth will develop the necessary tools to become creative and engaged citizens, life-long learners and the leaders and innovators of the 21st century.


Tim Lord is the Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director, with Jason Duchin, of the DreamYard Project. Tim received a Masters of Fine Arts in Theater from the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco and a BA in Political Science from Brown University. Tim has served on panels for the New York State Council on the Arts and the Department of Cultural Affairs, and is on the Task Force on Arts Education for the City of New York.
