All children are creators (not just pupils or merely consumers), their art can be the most honest and purest form of human creative expression, and collectively they possess the power to bring the human race together—and they will at their 6th World Children’s Festival on The National Mall in June 2019.


Your offspring (or students) can participate in the 6th Arts Olympiad free of charge, enhance their creative potential through the ChildArt quarterly, and come celebrate creativity, diversity, and unity at the 2019 world festival. Your family will meet the Arts Olympiad winners from across America and one hundred countries and you will see them collaboratively produce the "Children's Earth Flag" for the first human mission to Mars.


You can help grow creativity and imbue it with empathy through your donation today. The underlying cause of our most urgent and intractable problems is a lack of creativity and empathy—which we develop through the arts. Creativity and empathy are key attributes of successful learners and leaders, and essential for any sustainable solution.


Together we can make the next generation far more worthy of this lonesome planet—a pale blue dot in the universe.
