ArtsEdConnect is one of several programs offered through SVCreates’ Children’s Creativity Collaborative (C3). C3 is a network of Silicon Valley leaders, educators and philanthropists dedicated to improving the lives of our children and youth through the power of the arts. C3 envisions a “next generation” of creative thinkers, artists and innovators inspired and strengthened by their exposure to the arts, engagement in the arts, and prominent exhibition of their creations. C3’s mission is to increase access to the arts for Silicon Valley children and youth.
ArtsEdConnect (as the name implies) works to connect Silicon Valley school teachers with local arts educators (organizations and individual artists) by providing comprehensive information about arts education programs and how those programs might fit within the teacher’s curriculum. We also provide a listings of local ‘family-friendly’ events, activities and attractions that might enhance a child’s cultural awareness and education.
