To democratize creativity for the AI Revolution…

Produced every four years as the “Olympics” of children’s imagination, the World Children’s Festival (WCF) brings together visual and performing artists, educators and technologists, and civil leaders and policy makers to create a transformative experience that is both fun and educational.

Exceptional visual artists are selected through the Arts Olympiad, a school art program that has grown over the years into the world’s largest.

Extraordinary performers are chosen based on an online application and evaluation process.

Educators and technologists are invited to host art activities, educational workshops, and empathy training.

For a “more perfect union”…

Empathy for others—from all walks of life, all religions, and all nations—can be the greatest American gift to the world.

When we learn to experience empathy, we realize that diversity and differences can enhance self-discovery and collaborative innovation.

Empathy does not come naturally. We must learn to see each other as inseparably human. We must intuit past the material and physical boundaries that exaggerate differences.

“The greatness of a culture can be found in its festival.” – Siddharth Katragadda
