ICAF serves American children as their national arts organization and the world’s children as their global arts organization. Mission To foster American children’s creativity and develop mutual empathy among them and their peers worldwide for a prosperous and peaceful future. Vision To democratize creativity for the Fourth Industrial Revolution and grow mutual empathy for “a more perfect union.” Services ICAF organizes the Arts Olympiad, a school art program that has grown over the years into the world’s largest. Every four years, ICAF produces the World Children’s Festival as the “Olympics” of children’s imagination at the National Mall across the U.S. Capitol. Since 1998, ICAF has published the ChildArt quarterly free of commercial advertisements for children’s creative and empathic development.

An estimated two million students, parents, and teachers have attended ICAF festivals, exhibitions, and conferences in over twenty major cities worldwide. The readership of ChildArt quarterly has grown to an estimated 220,000. Through ICAF, children gain a sense of self-worth and confidence in themselves as creators. They come to recognize that they are the future and their imagination a seedbed for discovery and innovation. ICAF promotes their art as the most honest and pure form of human creative expression. Funding The National Endowment of the Art, the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities, the Susan Zirkl Memorial Charitable Foundation, the Skillman Foundation, the Keith Campbell Foundation, and the Robert J. Bauer Family Foundation have supported ICAF this year. Current in-kind supporters include Penguin Random House, Winsor & Newtown, and Kuretake, Ltd. of Japan. Since none of the largest private foundations support ICAF, creative-empathic individuals provide the lion’s share of funding.

Our clowns aren’t solving geopolitics, preventing global conflict, or taking away trauma. We’re simply showing up — and showing people that they matter enough to laugh, play, and have an extraordinary day.
