The Office of Cultural Affairs is a unit of the City's Office of Economic Development. Together, we foster cultural and economic development as related strategies for continuing to build San Jose as the cultural and economic heart of Silicon Valley. The OCA coordinates services for a large number of outdoor events and festivals, offers a variety of financial support opportunities for arts and culture providers, supports arts education, and leads the development of public art works throughout the city.
The OCA also provides staff support for the San Jose Arts Commission, a 13-member citizen advisory body appointed by the City Council.
