With the support of an Art Works grant through the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and generous support from local corporate sponsors, the City of Palo Alto will launch a festival called Code:ART June 1-3, 2017.
At the epicenter of Silicon Valley, Palo Alto’s population of 65,000 more than doubles each day with tech commuters and Stanford University affiliates. The sometimes secretive nature of the work taking place within these companies has occasionally limits interaction between the residential community and tech employees, and leaves the downtown corridor largely void of evidence of the creative minds at work. Code:ART will temporarily reframe the City as a laboratory for urban interventions and creative placemaking while engaging commuters, residents, students and visitors in dialogue to shape the future of the downtown corridor.
