According to a recent study (The Conference Board/Americans for the Arts), 72% of business leaders say creativity is a primary skill they seek when hiring. Do you feel your child’s creativity is being nurtured at school? Would you like to find ways to encourage an interest in the arts at home? How does creativy play a part in your own life?

A Twitter Party is a quick and engaging virtual party using the Twitter platform. Twitter parties typically last one hour and are a great way for people to connect and discuss a particular topic. Twitter parties have an expert host to keep the party on topic.

Want to join the party but haven’t spent much time on Twitter? No problem. We’ll have a special Twitter Party clinic starting at 10:40 a.m. prior to the Twitter Party.

The moderators for the discussion, @LACountyArts, @laArts4all, and @Arts4LA, will tweet out discussion questions starting with "Q1" (for question one), "Q2" (for question two), and so on.  Those participating in the party should use the #KidsCre8 hashtag in their tweet AND start tweets with "A1" (to answer question one), "A2" (to answer question two), and so on.  You'll get the hang of it in no time!  Our Twitter Party partners, the California State PTA (@CaliforniaPTA), LA2050 (@LA2050), and LA Parent magazine (@LAParentMag) will contribute to the discussion, retweet your answers, and help us keep the party lively, upbeat, and on track.
