The Current Events of Creativity Cafe and
Visionary Artists Resources Including Other Unique Services

CURRENT EVENTS as of 04/05/16

last revised: 05/29/2008 - 10/09/12

•••••••••••••••• Another New Beginning ••••••••••••••••

  • 04/05/16 Replaced the ugly homepage with a less ugly one! Obviously the site needs major revision and has been all but abandoned since 2012. Hopefully the near future will bring a re-design.
  • 10/09/12 After a long while It became impossible to live physical AND cyberlife and keep up this site at NOW BIG Changes are afoot. Management is moving to SF once again to ground the vision of Creativity Cafe Community Service Centers. If you'd like, please be in touch with your desire to assist or participate in building the road to Creativity Cafe success, or participating in presenting your art interactively with audiences at a VMI event. You might also like to sign up for a Digital Storytelling Playshop such as this one produced on Maui in 2005.

    Edutainments with the help of volunteers and lots of sweat equity. Management has relocated to NJ. Until further notice, our contact points are:

    09/20/06 It has been over a year since production of "KidCast for Peace" and no V.A.R.I.O.U.S. Media Ink events have been produced since Jan 2001. It is again, a time to reflect on the changes in the world, myslelf and developing technologies. I was to have alreaqdy manifested an ongoing and physical Creativity Cafe by now, but in 26 years I have not discovered the visionary investor to make the writing on my walls real!

    In order to Grok Creativity Cafe's future evolution and more closely bond with affiliates and kindred spirits, I ask you click the Creativity Cafe link above and collaborate/facilitate similar projects of Community Empowerment to help dissolve the digital and educational divide.
