CreaTV San José is a nonprofit community media access center in downtown San José. Our mission is to inspire, educate and connect San José communities, using media to foster civic engagement. Serving the San José and Silicon Valley community since 2008, CreaTV is a nationally recognized Community Media Center focusing on access to media and technology, the art of storytelling and digital equity issues.
