Welcome to Creativity Cafe®; a learning sanctuary and community visioning center. At the core of all life is imagination!
We are making some changes around here. Stop back often to discover how artists are using technology for humanity. We honor the digital storytellers of the future, especially those being featured in KidCast for Peace; Solutions for a Better World #15.

INVITATION: Earth Day 2005 features KidCast for Peace Digital (or not) Storytelling Adventure, Video Conference and Art Competition!
On April 22, 2005, KidCast for Peace; Solutions for a Better World will facilitate the expression of young people and their SOLUTIONS; telling adults what to do for a change in a live multi-node video conference. The assembled kids in multiple countries will show and discuss SOLUTIONS for birthing a happier, healthier, safer and more peace filled. Right now children from Hawaii, California, Canada, Korea, Belgium and elsewhere are slated to participate. The unfolding digital storytelling network and this conference opportunity helps young people create the world they will inherit.
KCFP invites you to join in a global videoconference and interactive art show on the Internet. The project connects kids in schools who have made art suggesting how to bring more peace love and happiness into the world. You too can participate by offering a creative solution, and sharing your art and heart on April 22! The idea is to facilitate connection of kids (of all ages with focus on K12) in classrooms, hospital rooms and homes. Our desire is to inspire young people and to instigate the production of positive media "content" to offset violent and fear filled programming. KidCast for Peace gives gathered children a loud voice in shaping their future world. Please contact us to host a gathering in your school, club or home.
Through creating this "Peace Portal," KCFP facilitates peer to peer interaction that transcends borderlines, color lines and cultural seperation. While our focus is on K12 children, KidCast connects all kids at heart. Let's all get together and appreciate the children for their peace filled contributions. KidCast for Peace motivates young people to shape the world they will inherit; helping them learn about cooperation, creative self-expression, ecological sanity and conflict resolution. Details can be found in KidCast Central: http://creativity.net/KidCast/ . Participants are getting ready. Can you join us?
We seek those who want to offer creative and multimedia "Solutions" for making Earth and its peoples happier, healthier and more peace filled. Can YOU PICTURE PEACE? What does "love" look like? We invite you to make PEACE art, put it on a KCFP web site on your server. Send the URL to firstname.lastname@example.org, and participate in giving future leaders an opportunity to help shape the world we are making. Everyone is invited to share their art, creative ideas and Earth Day performances.

PS: Normally the KCFP iVisit network does not form until just before the event. We would like to test with you way before if possible? Please let me know. Before that, people are getting information, making art, and debugging their audio and video so the technology is transparent on the day of our event. You can keep the pulse of our activities by joining our KIDCAST FOR PEACE MAILING LIST: http://www.creativity.net/forum2005/viewtopic.php?t=28
