Mission & Goals:
It takes but one generation to build a just, prosperous, and nonviolent world. Our children can make this happen. Since 1997 the ICAF has employed the power of the arts to nurture children’s innate creativity and develop intrinsic empathy. Our programs grow children’s imagination, remediate suffering, and create peace. Approximately 5 million children worldwide have produced art under our programs over the past 17 years. We hosted the very first national children’s arts festival in U.S. history, held in Washington, D.C. in September 1998. We have produced the World Children’s Festival on the National Mall every four years since 1999 as the Olympics of children’s co-creation.
How your contribution helps:
Your contribution will support the 5th Arts Olympiad (2013-2016), an innovative arts and sport program that introduces children ages 8-12 to the "Artist-Athlete Ideal" of the creative mind and healthy body. Your children can also participate in the Arts Olympiad, which is free of charge. Maybe your child gets to represent your city at the 2015 World Children's Festival in Washington, DC.
