Member Highlight: SVCreates

SVCreates seeks to address the signficant challenges arts organizations face in finding affordable, permanent space in Silicon Valley by championing a distributed network of shared, multi-tenant facilities which bring arts groups and artists together to share resources and build community. SVCreates First Street Arts Hub is a 7500 SF open floor plan office space shared by six arts organizations and creatives and includes a live streaming studio (installed during COVID) for use by San Jose Jazz and others.

What is one interesting fact about your space?

Our facility is in the South First Street Area arts corridor of downtown San Jose, and so we share an entire neighborhood with other like-mind and mission aligned arts organizations.

What are your favorite resources that you would recommend to others?

The NCN list servce is an invaluable resource to address all types of questions! We’ve particularly appreciated the value of sharing challenges and potential solutions with colleagues throughout the US and Canada during the COVID crisis.
