“Since the conception of Smith Street Dreaming relationships have improved with the Smith Street Dreaming motto One Street, Many Mobs, One Community” becoming a reality. Personally, I have been involved with Smith Street Dreaming from the onset and I have seen it firsthand be embraced and accepted by all stakeholders, investors and most of all our community. It a very special Festival one of those I am proud to be part of.”
Jason Tamiru Smith Street Dreaming Producer
