What is C3?

C3 (Creative Community Committee) is a group of diverse representatives from Santa Cruz County. We tackle issues in our community together. It’s a leadership network for creative, action-oriented people who want to build a stronger, more connected Santa Cruz.

In 2017, this community think tank will work together to develop an art exhibition about transition-age foster youth. You will help develop the exhibition through participatory brainstorming sessions that emphasize creative approaches to working together and dreaming up a better future for Santa Cruz County. We will work together from Jan-June 2017, and then the exhibition, Lost Childhoods, will be open to the public from July-Dec 2017.

C3 is a project of the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History (MAH). For us at the MAH, C3 is a way to infuse our exhibitions and programs with diverse perspectives, creative ideas, and relevant partnerships. Our community drives all of our work at the MAH. C3 is like jet fuel for us.

      2nd thought: C3 is wonderful culturally creative people connected by MAH to embark on a most relevant, emotionally intelligent journey, an adventure about sharing-learning-thinking-creating-collaborating together on this worth-while potentially big-impact-ful project.
