SVCreates is a 21st Century “venture culturist,” using a combination of entrepreneurial strategies to accelerate Silicon Valley’s creative culture:
To amplify our impact, we also partner with organizations that share our vision of a vibrant community fueled by arts and culture. Two examples of this approach are our Creative Center for the Arts in Japantown, and Imagine VMC at Valley Medical Center:
The Creative Center for the Arts is a collaboration of arts and cultural organizations, community groups, and civic leaders, working together to design a 56,000 sq ft. facility in Japantown that advances community priorities and provides an innovative solution to arts displacement and shared services in Silicon Valley.
Imagine VMC brings together a variety of Silicon Valley’s cherished arts and cultural organizations, to infuse the new Women & Children’s Center at Valley Medical Center with creative spaces, interactive exhibits and programs that reflect Silicon Valley culture, inspire joy and learning, and demonstrate the healing power of the arts.
“No matter what language we speak at home, no matter how different we might look from our peers, or how different our traditions might be from others, it’s the arts that allow us to embrace and celebrate those things that make us special. They give us the means to tell our story, while at the same time allowing us to listen more closely to the stories of others.” - Jane Chu, NEA Chairwoman
