To synchronize our intentions / reset a collective attention / Forward

This 414 Day, we celebrate the creativity that lights up Milwaukee. Championships won, fresh coats of paint laid, new music and movement and flavors made. Together we rise, striding towards a new day.

The poem, written by Milwaukee and Wisconsin Poet Laureate Dasha Kelly Hamilton for this year's video, reflects on this current moment in Milwaukee: a moment full of promise as our city comes into its own in the light of a new morning. Our thanks to director Samer Ghani and partner Visit Milwaukee.
