ValleyCreates is a multi-year initiative that seeks to strengthen and connect the diverse arts and creativity community in our Valley. Throughout our first two years, we’ve listened to and learned from our local arts and creativity leaders about the specific challenges that stand in the way of a truly connected and inclusive arts community. Over the last two years, we’ve provided capacity trainings to small arts nonprofits, have funded the exploration of an online regional arts hub to serve artists and arts organizations, and have provided collaborative grants where arts organizations and artists could come together and collaborate on a project that would impact meaningful change in the Valley through the arts.
