    Vashti sits in font of a blank piece of paper. Though her teacher encourages her to try, Vashti can’t draw – or so she thinks. In frustration, she jabs at the blank piece of paper. Somehow, her one little dot becomes the beginning of a surprise journey of self-discovery. The simple, witty story delicately encourages the creative spirit in us all.

    Join a global celebration of creativity, courage and collaboration! What started as a story in the pages of a book is transforming teaching and learning around the world as people of all ages re-discover the power and potential of creativity in all they do. Check out all sorts of resources, activities, and ways to connect.
