The Creative Center, also called the Creative Center at Japantown Square, is a new model for supporting arts and creativity in the 21st century. The Creative Center will create a nexus of flexible services and spaces within physical and virtual infrastructures, promoting an environment of collaboration and an entrepreneurial spirit in the creative sector that will thrive in the context of Silicon Valley. As a sustainable hub of resources for the nonprofit creative sector, it will be part of a growing national network of shared facilities represented, studied, and served by the Nonprofit Centers Network (NCN). NCN has demonstrated the significant financial, programmatic, and communal benefits of such centers, which are becoming more and more common throughout the United States and Canada.
San Jose Taiko is proud to be an equity partner in this project, which is led by SV Creates.
