Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
ZERO1 was founded in 2000 in Silicon Valley at the intersection of art, technology, and digital culture. With the recent acquisition of The Garage—its new exhibition, event, and office space—the organization has launched into a new era of programming. Its three lines of work include its biennial festival, a new fellowship program that partners artists with corporate, academic, and public partners to spawn innovative projects, and a suite of year-round exhibition and performance programs. ZERO1 plans to expand its new corporate membership program, continue to foster programming partnerships with other Bay Area arts organizations, and adapt its financial model to support its new physical and programmatic structures.
for general operating support  
Zero1 is a San Jose organization connecting creative explorers in art, science and technology to provoke and explore new ideas in Silicon Valley. Its flagship program is an international creative exchange initiative developed in partnership with the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs. Artists work in-country with communities abroad, actively engaging them around social issues to further cultural relations, influence public policy, and promote international social innovation. Having moved out of its San Jose programming facility and dropped the local Biennial Festival to streamline its operations, Zero1 no longer meets the Performing Arts Program’s strategic goals, so this will be a final grant to the organization.
