Our goal is to have an active representative Sponsor|Curator in each of the cities of the world to share positive creative information from a global perspective and include at the forefront good news and things that forward us all, as a human collective. In addition to artists, we feature musicians, poets, photographers, designers, and many creative types (including chefs) that fall outside of these categories. All of the multidisciplinary art forms in unique categories are on a page called ZO Creative.
Big thanks to CITY Sponsors that are signing up to become Charter Sponsors for the City of your choice. There are two city-level sponsorship categories — GOLD and PLATINUM 365. Lists with developing sponsor information can be found at these links. General information and cities for sponsorship can be found on the main City CURATOR Page. All Sponsors receive a unique presence on ZO. Developing CITY Sponsorship pages are below. If you have sponsored a City and it is not listed, please give us a week for your page to launch.
ZO launched its present Cloud Z incarnation with a Poetry Extravaganza at The Tropics, an exotic nursery in Hollywood, CA. (They did the plant work for Jurassic Park – see photos below.) We are planning to re-ignite the live aspects of our project and are now planning to host an international Time ZOne event. This will be a fun event that all of our friends all over the world can take part in. We are dividing the entertainment by UTC Time Codes and will host a 12-Hour global production with input from musicians, artists and content creators all over the world. Details are developing at the link.
A UNIQUE ART CONVERGENCE
The creative souls that have connected with ZO are all unique and have inspired us. A lot of our vision involves better communications generally for the world as a whole and these affiliations have absolutely shown us how possible that is. The “Collective” below comprise Contributors, Expo Judges, Artists and Advisors that have helped us get to this point of change.
. . . a million thanks to all for your valuable input and friendship.

TEAM ZO – CONNECTED PERFORMANCE & SPOKEN UNIVERSE ARTISTS – EXPO JUDGES – CREATIVE CONTRIBUTORS
There are a lot of exciting projects in the works at ZO — including unique collaborative formats that we are developing for art, music and film. We are sustained by our CITY Curator program of selected sponsors. If you are interested, please check out the link. Sponsors will be eligible for private art events that we are planning on an international basis, along with special offerings we are now working on with creative vendors and producers.
ZO IS A DEVELOPMENT SPOTLIGHT. We believe that creative minds can change the consciousness level of Earth and want to expose and support our members to develop and increase ways to “follow their passion.” To love what you do and find ways to use, sustain and improve your creative gifts is the beginning of satisfaction. It not only helps you — it will help others.
In this time where INFORMATION of every kind is available almost instantaneously, CHANGE is possible on an exponential level. We know that the world is riddled with problems, but there are lots of creative people everywhere that are working to solve those problems. You must get your information from more than one source to be truly informed for next level consciousness. The next level is up to all of us. Will it be a catastrophic continuation to abusing the resources of the earth until we are all poisoned; will we fight about it until we are all drained, depressed and continue the various us against them syndromes (nations, cultures, religions, race, economic status, etc.) that has manipulated the status quo for eons — or — can we WORK ON CREATIVE SOLUTIONS TO EVERYTHING.

YOU ARE AN INDIVIDUAL
Treat others like you want to be treated
Hold on to your individuality — it has been created for a purpose!
Share goodness and love with your creative gift whenever you can
TRY TO PROMOTE REASON and RESPECT FOR ALL LIFE
While all of us at ZO love art, music, architecture, design, and creativity in all of life; we do realize that these enjoyments cannot exist if earth as we know it does not exist. These times are tumultuous and our world is on the verge of many catastrophes. We want to be a voice for higher human consciousness and the need for nonviolent change. With an increasingly connected global community — we want to help effect this change THROUGH THE ARTS and COMMUNICATION.
The bottom line may be that all of us are either actively being creative or destructive on many levels. We are creating our own destiny or possibly doing things to destroy it; we are creating a better environment for ourselves and others or we are not. Whatever you are doing to others you are doing to yourself – ultimately. If you are improving yourself, making creative choices to work, create, and survive – great. If you are harming yourself, your relationships, your neighborhood, the planet . . . well . . . just think about it. We are not pointing fingers or judging anyone — we are asking ourselves these questions. These are conscious observations . . . as we at ZO try to improve our minds and creative gifts.
