There was no national arts organization for American children or an international one for the world's children up until the ICAF was established in 1997. To bring about positive change nationally and globally, the ICAF's intervention is comprised of the following programs, events, publications, and festivals:
The premier publication for child creative development and education through the arts.
The world leader in children's art exhibitions showcasing the imagination that will shape the future.
The world's largest art program for schoolchildren.
The "Olympics" of children's imagination.
Restoring the trust in nature of child victims of natural disasters.
Restoring the faith in humanity of child victims of manmade conflicts.
Mobilizing children to ensure biodiversity and survival of species
Children bringing their perspectives on issues concerning the future.
Paying a unique tribute to creative leaders of corporations and foundations.
