The Office of Cultural Affairs is the champion of San Jose's artistic and cultural vibrancy, resources, and vision.
We are the City of San José's lead agency for supporting the development of a rich arts and cultural environment for this diverse city's one million residents and its many visitors.
The arts and culture are essential elements in the character and quality of life in the vibrant San José community. As the largest city in northern California and the capital of Silicon Valley, San José is the hub of a wide array of arts and cultural opportunities.
Arts and culture in San José connects people, provides rich opportunities for participation, and fosters creativity.
