    About #408Creates.


    Informed by the national Creating Connections research on the benefits of creativity in everyday life, we launched the San Jose Creates and Connects initiative in 2016.

    The goal of San Jose Creates and Connects is to connect residents across communities and within neighborhoods through creative, participatory experiences. #408Creates developed out of our San Jose Creates and Connects work.

    Through #408Creates programming, we seek to recognize celebrate and promote diverse creative experiences, while building partnerships that enhance opportunities for residents' own creative expression.
