Each image expresses the artist’s unique visual lexicon displayed in the event space and sound lounge.

The program features a much anticipated announcement that the principal production of ‘Foster Dreamzz’ is completed. Proceeds for the event will underwrite the completion of West’s riveting documentary film. The film is unique, in that it is solution based; going beyond identifying a broken system. With empathy it advocates for a bold civic and community outreach. The core of the film spotlights the challenges and triumphs of foster care youth aging out of the system. The Foundation aims to lead a national movement that commingles the private and public sector to create free transitional housing for youth emancipated from foster care. Foster Dreamzzz is developing sustainable housing on vacant properties in Liberty City, a historical district in South Florida and beyond.

The event is being hosted by Zion Clark who was born into the Foster Care System with a rare birth defect called Caudal Regression Syndrome that left him without legs. Zion spent 17 horrific years in the Foster Care System. Since then he has become a Professional Athlete, Mental Health Advocate, Social Influencer, an All-American wrestler, an MMA fighter, a Guinness World Record holder, the subject of an EMMY Award-winning Netflix documentary, a noted author, and an internationally acclaimed speaker. His life to date serves as an inspiration to millions of people around the world.

Each year, more than 400,000 children are accounted for in the Foster Care System in the United States. Of those 400,000, an estimated 20,000 age-out of foster care each year falling vulnerable to homelessness, incarceration, sex trafficking and substance abuse.

Here are alarming fast facts:

• 20% of children in foster care become homeless after the age of 18

• 60% of child trafficking victims have spent time in foster care

• 80% of inmates incarcerated in U.S prisons have spent time in foster care

“We are so grateful for the alliance with the Lost Warhols, the Lamborghini Estate, LAMM Industries, Mozverse, Creative Mind Talks, Revolution 93.5 Radio station, Planet Fashion TV, ArtBasil, Sarah Ashley Agency, GVNG, Co-Modeco, Philip de Clare, Fine Art Consultant and Rebel of America in supporting this significant launch,” says Allen J. West.

Development Timeline:

At this time, Foster Dreamzzz plans to break ground on their new housing developments in Q1 of 2024 and complete the full length documentary in Q1 as well.
