The Business of Arts and Culture

Silicon Valley’s cultural ecosystem is a vast, organic network of hundreds of small- to mid-sized multidisciplinary arts and cultural organizations and thousands of artists, creative entrepreneurs, volunteers, and individual participants. In 2021, SVCREATES released The Business of Arts and Culture about this ecosystem. Read and download the report below or on Issuu here.

On May 13, 2021 Silicon Valley Business Journal (SVBJ) President and Publisher Mary Huss facilitated a discussion with Santa Clara County Supervisor Cindy Chavez, Nicole Taylor of Silicon Valley Community Foundation, and SVCREATES CEO Connie Martinez about what this research means to our community, why a strong arts and cultural sector is vital to a thriving economy, and what we can do to strengthen its resilience.
