Third Symposium on CA Arts & Healty Communities

California Lawyers for the Arts
in collaboration with Arts Council Silicon Valley and co-sponsors California Arts Advocates, 1st ACT SiliconValley, and The City of San Jose presents

The Third Symposium on California Arts and Healthy Communities

3 pm to 4:30 pm, Tuesday, May 6, 2008

Santa Clara County Office of Education, Board Room
1290 Rider Park Drive, San Jose, CA 95131

California spends three cents per person from the State’s General Fund for the California Arts Council, less than any other U.S. state or territory. How are cities and counties addressing this gap in the California arts infrastructure? What strategies for local public and private philanthropy are being developed? This Symposium, highlighting the experience of Santa Clara County, will explore the value of the arts for youth development, economic development and the quality of life in our communities.

Speakers include Larry Stone, Santa Clara County Assessor and a founder of Arts Council Silicon Valley; Bruce Davis, Executive Director of Arts Council Silicon Valley; Connie Martinez, Executive Director of 1stAct Silicon Valley; Kim Walesh, Assistant Director of the San Jose Office of Economic Development; Ruth Tunstall-Grant, Member of the San Jose Arts Commission and Director of the Art Education Program at Children’s Shelter of Santa Clara County; and Mark Walker, Managing Director, Global Community Affairs at Applied Materials. Alma Robinson, Executive Director of California Lawyers for the Arts, will moderate the panel.

Admission is free, but space is limited and pre-registration is required. Advance registration is available at: http://thirdsymposium.eventbrite.com. Please plan to arrive between 2:30 pm and 2:45 pm. A reception will follow at the conclusion of the program. For more information, please call (408) 998-2787 x 216 or send an e-mail to sanjose@calawyersforthearts.org.

The Symposium will be taped by the Instructional Media division of the Santa Clara County Office of Education for local viewing and distribution to cable access stations statewide.
