KidCast For Peace is an art exhibition and community forum to discuss solutions catalyzed by artistic expressions. "Image" authors meet with the public in a multi-node Internet broadcast/multicast to share about their creative solution to the ills of Earth and it's peoples. This "Happening" will feature digital storytelling. Get ready by downloading free video conferencing software from iVisit found http://www.ivisit.com/ to participate fully or you can just look at the art in Creativity Cafe's Gallery of Solutions (and linked to web sites).
Participants are asked to focus on issues within their communities and create a digital story told from nature's point of view, or just make any suggestion for improving things. Suggested applications for Digital Storytelling: Power Point, Web pages, Flash, Voice Over Sound Files, Video Clips of Skits, Eco Rap Songs (mp3) and/or 3D animation. Of course scanned 2D analog art is fine too!
