Join us live and in cyberspace to explore virtual worlds, chat rooms and
celebrate life in an atmosphere where "Strangers, who are just friends who
haven't yet met." Bring some kids and the Kid-in-you for International live
music jams as part of a global orchestra composed of KIDS-OF-ALL-AGES in
schools, homes and community Internet nodes using Natural Instruments, MIDI
Musical Instrument "Chats" thanks to ResRocket.com, theatre-of-the-absurd
performances (real life?), instant art creation and more.
Enjoy Conscious Cabaret with Errol Streider, our magnificent minister of
fun, frolic and feeling good. He will host KidCast storytelling theater
and present: "Elfbert, Santa's Reluctant Helper;" about an Elf who
persuades Santa to give children "qualities" for Xmas instead of toys; an
excellent libation for the soul with charming emphasis on values
(integrity, fairness, courage...etc.), presented in a very unique and
delightful way... "They" --a piece about peer pressure, and being one's
self rather than be concerned about "What they think," talks about where
"they" go to school to become "theys"-satirical, self affirming. We hope
you will partake of this offering of more than just a few of these
"appetizers" to introduce you to our upcoming series of Creativity Cafe
Conscious Cabaret Networking Salons where folks like Errol will shine for
those "Dancing on the Edge Of Time," or just wanting to find friends
interested in synergy, Pronoia and escape from paths of pain.
Participation details from where ever you are can be found in Kidcast
Central as can present and past sponsors, supporters and participants from
other KidCasts: http://creativity.net/kidcast2.html.
We will be setting up on Sunday, for our gathering and "broadcasting" on
Monday. Vendors with suitable products or services may approach us for
table space. Everyone is most welcome to join our festive community
happening in Pacific Heights, be introduced to kids-of-all-ages, the
technology of digital storytelling, for fun (bring your musical
instruments, some stuff to eat and drink; hang out and "talk Story"). And.
let's not forget our main purpose for expressing solutions to take the FEAR
out of life on planet Earth.
KidCast Creation Stations (including crayons) will be available to make
digital art and to explore virtual worlds, thanks to 3220 Networks, Greg
Jalbert Creator of Bliss Paint Visual Music generation software
and others. Creativity Cafe tour guides will assist the public to make
art on the spot for instant web site construction.
