Strategic Focus : Cultural Literacy : artSPARK
artSPARK leverages Silicon Valley’s cultural venues and the quality, richness and diversity of its ecosystem to provide a defined menu and calendar of arts and culture programming for every 3rd - 6th grader through annual field trips.
Progress to Date: 1stACT Silicon Valley has co-developed a plan for creating a menu of cultural experiences that ensures Silicon Valley kids grow up with the arts. A transportation partner and the program model of combining two arts experiences in one field trip has been tested on a smaller scale with Symphony Silicon Valley. Planning with City of San Jose Arts Express Program to transition their work into artSPARK is complete and the program will launch in the Fall with a group of early adopter school districts.
