We take our annual Twestival Newark logo very seriously. We searched high and low for a designer that would capture the culture of Newark, essence of Twestival and the style of Twitter... Konscious Kreations answered the call!

Welcome to Twestival Newark 2011
5 February 2011
Hello and welcome to the Twestival Newark blog! We are proud to announce that on March 24th Twestival Newark will host its own Twestival Local event.
Twestival® (or Twitter Festival) uses social media for social good by connecting communities off-line on a single day to highlight a great cause and have a fun event. Twestival is the largest global grass roots social media fundraising initiative to date. Since 2009, volunteers have raised close to $1.2 million for 137 non-profits. All local events are organized 100% by volunteers and 100% of all ticket sales and donations go direct to projects.
Twestival was born out of the idea that if cities were able to collaborate on an international scale, but work from a local level, it could have a spectacular impact. Over 200 international cities from Buenos Aires to Bangalore, Seattle to Seoul and Hong Kong to Honolulu have participated in Twestival.
Twestival Local 2011 is a great opportunity to bring the community together. The day is about more than fundraising, but all money raised will go directly to a local charity, that means 100% of the funds will be spent in Newark. We are still in the process of choosing our own charity, so watch out on Twitter for announcements.
We are currently working on confirming a venue. Tickets will go on sale in a few weeks so remember to check back here or follow us on Twitter, details below. We will announce details of the evening's activities over the coming weeks, but if you have suggestions or would like to get involved, our contact details are below. In fact, please get in touch if you can help or advise in any way!
For updates or to get involved (Volunteer or Sponsor), please follow us on Twitter (where else?!) @TwestivalNewark or contact Twestival@LCHBusiness.com, and make a note of the date in your diary - 24th March 2011.
