#IWG12 - Second week, August 2012 - We will celebrate with a blog tour over the week, in honour of the upcoming International Year of Giftedness and Creativity 2013. This tour invites any who wish to blow a breath of air at our communal kite of giftedness, attach a bow of an idea onto it’s tail,--- help it start to get it off the ground, simply by taking part, to contribute a blog post with your stories/ideas, and help others to see what can be...

We are hoping that the #IWG12 will give our gifted global community’s beautiful kite a good head start with your ideas.
