ShakeXperience: Life Experience Meets Classic Texts

San Jose, California

The mission of SVCreates is to ignite investment and engagement in Silicon Valley’s creative culture. Founded in 1982, their work builds on a foundation of 40+ years of experience in supporting the local arts ecosystem, and focuses on three key areas: building the creative sector’s capacity, raising its value and visibility, and increasing access to arts and creativity. In their role as a 21st century cultural steward, SVCreates strives to connect and engage with the whole community of Silicon Valley, with a focus on Santa Clara County artists and arts organizations, business and civic leaders, audience members, funders and individual donors.

SVCreates will offer multiple series of theater workshops, each focused on a specific play, culminating in a staged reading. SVCreates expects participants to develop theatre skills and to maximize social engagement among participants, and ultimately between audience and participants at the staged reading.
