7. 11. Describe your idea in more depth. (maximum 300 words)
Creativity Cafe's main purpose is to harness creative force for individual and community
benefit. The venue is at least three things: a physical edutainment
emporium, a community resource center and ubiquitous tool, and a group of
branded edutainment technologies that connect people, venues and
communities to resources, information and each other for mutual benefit.
Ideally, Creativity Cafe will have highly re-configurable performance spaces, separate
floors, rooms and/or areas to enable fun learning experiences, private
meetings, training's and mingling etc. Production studios generate
virtual experiences, support multi-node audio-video conferencing and
personal broadcasting, etc.
The domed EarthStation offers interactive Creativity Cafe Theater
Of-The-Future edutainments involving similar clubs for immersive public
learning experiences and hyper-networking. Digital storytelling and
interactive cyberTheater provide an atmosphere where Strangers, are
just friends who haven't yet met! and help forge collaboration in new
business ventures and learning modalities.
Creativity Cafe Creative Community Collaboration/Venue Operating Systems
(C3vOS) orchestrate meaningful content and connection to resources to
help people cope with personal/planetary transformation - while
generating multiple profit streams. 3CvOS is part Internet, part mobile
devices and venue infrastructure harnessing club patrons practicing
PRONOIA and those who seek connection, resources and assistance with
personal needs. Direct citizen participation in government is easily
The system helps equalize those who have resources (capitalization,
food) with those who don't (homeless, hungry & mentally challenged)
The venue becomes a partner supplying needed resources along the
learning-funding curve while facilitating participation in innovative
small businesses. Creativity Cafe branded edutainment is just one of
25+ profit streams sustaining creative people, the venue, general
membership and the community.
Creativity Cafe is a friendly hang-out. An alternative to alcohol based bars
catering specifically to creative people and their audiences. People thinking
outside the box will feel right at home. CC's bring people together who
are best suited to help rectify issues and offer solutions, specific
to any particular culture's challenges (depending on venue location).
8. 12. What problem or issue does your idea address? (maximum 150 words):
Exposed corruption and greed has eroded trust in our leaders.
People can't cope with or comprehend our technologically speeded up, dynamically
Poor education has dumbed down the masses unable to make informed
choices about their future. Many are paralyzed in fear and economic challenge.
Creative people are under utilized and nurtured in society; fearful of
change and yet these creative people are the harbingers of new ways of being and seeing.
Creative people are perhaps the best answers to our prayers, but often
need support, nurturing, representation, marketing and other services
designed to compensate them. Creativity Cafe is dedicated to their support and helping
free their creative force to be used for the good of the whole community.
People can not make wise choices nor effectively participate in
government without knowledge to make informed choices.
Children have warped values thanks to violent television, parental
upbringing and poor education. They need reprogramming.
9. 13. If your idea were to become a reality, who would benefit the most
and how? (maximum 150 words)
The general populace and young people in particular, parents, teachers,
community members will enjoy innovative learning and healing experiences. Multimedia storytelling
will make personal, local and global challenges understandable so people
can make more educated choices.
Every country would benefit with places for citizens to gather; helping collaborate and
better understand the changing world - thanks to educational entertainment, provided in ways
that dissolve barriers and bring global community closer together.
Community members develop new income streams and meet personal
and community challenges by becoming mentors, teachers and edutainers.
Creative people will be able to do what they love, giving their gifts to
the world while mass marketers produce revenues to be shared by the
creators and their support systems.
Government will improve thanks to direct citizen participation via Creativity Cafe
Countries will enjoy melted borderlines and connection without prejudice.
Conscious Creators will have a base for greater collaboration and mutual
support systems at home or while traveling.
10. 14. What are the initial steps required to get this idea off the
ground? (maximum 150 words)
Find a multiplex theater willing to give up a screen (or other suitable venue),
make great graphics and Web site supporting a CALL TO CREATIVE ARMS
announcing Creativity Cafe and its agenda during the V.A.R.I.O.U.S. Media Ink interactive
showcases and Networking Event for Creative People and their audiences.
The event and many prototype Creativity Cafe's have successfully been proven since 1980,
to attract those who will become the backbone of this community venue. I
suggest starting in LA as once we are successful there (friends
just reopened LASERIUM, in a new theater space at Hollywood and Vine). Word will spread
and our successful prototpye will be perfected and replicated all over the world
11. 15. Describe the optimal outcome should your idea be selected and
successfully implemented. How would you measure it? (maximum 150 words):
Ideally, we will be in production exhibiting interactive experiences within
the year in a venue in alignment with this proposal. A call for founders team
members and those recommended will get together to go over a concise business plan;
to share in birthing this baby - in progress since Jul 11 1980. The nonprofit it spawned
has experienced great corporate support of our V.A.R.I.O.U.S. Creativity Cafe prototypes.
This new game in Wailuku Town will attract people also developing products and services
to help transform lives, give hope to the hopeless, while offering governments a
helping hand - providing food for thought and giving hope to those sick and tired of
leaders, not truly supporting people with foresight and unbridled passion to
cure disease, house the homelessness and hungry, etc.. Success is measured by
participation, profits, corporate support and solved problems.
