Visionary Artists' Resources Including Other Unique Services

founded by artists to serve the community


Aloha Dear Maui Ohana,

Already a year has gone by since our last production of "KidCast For Peace; Solutions For a Better World." We invite your participation this year! Now more than ever it is important that we focus our attention on PEACE! A lot has transpired mandating that each of us openly, enthusiastically and consciously make a choice to choose PEACE. Every energy focused in this direction, no matter how small it may seem, makes a big difference and impacts the world toward more inner and outer PEACE.

"KidCast For Peace" gives children of all ages a chance to ACTIVELY share SOLUTIONS for creating more happiness, health and PEACE. We are taping a TV Show at the local Cable Television Access station and suggest you do the same! We are professionally pre-taping our local offerings of art, writing, poems and performances for PEACE created by YOU and your kids (or the kid in you). SOLUTIONs offered by Maui kids will be aired on cable for the next two years and streamed on the net (once a streaming sponsor is found).

Whether or not you produce your own local KidCast for Peace TV show, on Earth Day bring your VISIONS of PEACE and/or performance to a KidCast Node near you to interactively share via a video multicast connecting K12 kids in schools Internationally (as well as those at home and other locations). Let's give kids a loud voice in shaping their future world. You have a chance to openly and publicly make your statement for PEACE to this planet, and to make a difference - in your life as well as others. Our intention is to educate our children to know they can do something that WILL make a difference.

A case in point: I ran into an 8th grader the other day. I asked her what she could do to make the world a better place? Her response was she didn't think anything she did would make a difference. Upon talking more with her I discovered she loved dancing and was concerned about all the trash but felt anything she did didn't matter. I suggested she dance her concerns. She said, " I can do that!" She was inspired through her passion to make a statement about her concerns.

Your job, as parent, teacher, etc. is to open discussion with your children. Help them discover what is their passion, and how to create something out of that that can be shared/performed for PEACE! This way, others may be inspired to tap into their resources and know that they too can bring forth their desires for PEACE. We need your help to inspire our children to know THEY CAN make a difference!

To make this a reality we need help in two ways:

1. Communicate with your children and inspire them to create their expression of something they feel would inspire PEACE and contact me.

2. Help generate funds to support this project. i.e. Donations, stage Fund Raisers, write Grants, etc. (any creative process you might know of)
