Envisioning Diridon Station Read the report from our workshop with CatalyzeSV

As a key component of our mission, San José Arts Advocates are committed to collaborating with other community-based organizations to create a more inclusive, engaged, and empowered San José.

That’s why on November 21, 2020, thanks to support from the City of San José, we partnered with CatalyzeSV, San José Jazz, and genARTS Silicon Valley to facilitate a virtual workshop for the artist and creative community to hear their ideas on the future of the Diridon Station Area at the heart of the new Downtown Google campus.

We’d like to thank all of the artists, community members, city staff, Google reps, and friends of SJAA who participated in the workshop and offered their creative perspective. On behalf of our partners and volunteer facilitators, we’re proud to present the final report from the workshop. You can find it here.

You can also watch Parts I & II and Part IV of the workshop on Catalyze SV’s Facebook page.
