Research shows that if a child's innate creativity is suppressed, it can be lost forever. Understanding that arts are a language of imagination and understanding.

The International Child Art Foundation (ICAF) prepares children for a creative and cooperative future so that they are able to lead us into a better and peaceful world. For this purpose ICAF developed several programs of which is the Arts Olympiad. The Arts Olympiad is today the world's largest and most prestigious arts initiative for 8- to 12-year-old children.

The program commences with school art competitions on a universal theme, leading to regional festivals, and culminates in an international festival on the National Mall in Washington, DC every four years.

The theme of this year's Olympiad (the Third Arts Olympiad) is “My Favourite Sports” in which several Arab countries are participating. Children between 8 and 12 years of age from all around the world can send their participations before 31ts of December this year. For more information email [email protected]
