Create a network of physical Creativity Cafes around the world that are
live and cyberspace networking salons featuring educational entertainment
and multimedia cybertheater. A fun place where people gather for play and
work, where creative people, using the marriage of art and state-of-the-art
technology, learn from each other and have a forum for showcasing their
work and profiting from their talents.
Establish Creativity Cafe as a "New School for the Next Millennium." To
inspire and empower the public in both CyberSpace and in communities around
the world by providing affordable access to technology and instruction; by
creating experiences that are inspiring, entertaining and educate us to be better
human beings. To create and propagate life enhancing edutainment in the
mass media. To provide neighborhood facility(s) where the tools of today
can serve the leaders of tomorrow. A place to assist you to discover
the personal benefits of the communication revolution in ways where "Strangers,
are just friends who haven't yet met," and benefit your personal path direcly.
Establish and build a network of cyber play spaces for kids of all ages and their
families. A public place to bridge cyber and physical space where
personal tour guides hand-hold the technophobic and curious. To create and
propagate multimedia edutainment that demonstrates our human potential, is
healing and helps foster global unity. Distribute economic benefits to owners,
staff and community members resulting from production, publishing and sale of
experiences and products we co-create . Digital storytelling tool education and
access. Produce interactive entertainments distributed in various media; to be
marketed by the Creativity Cafe Consortium.
Continue maintaining visibility using public "Living Gallery" events such
as "KidCast For Peace; Solutions For A Better World" and producing
physical networking salons (V.A.R.I.O.U.S. Media Ink Artists Showcase and
Network); trade show installations, multimedia performances, traditional
media, email, and Web programming. Since 1980, in-kind support has come
from leading technology corporations and organizations believing in our mission.
We continue to develop alliances with cutting edge organizations, corporations,
other electronic cafes and cyber-performance environments/advocates.
