Artspiration is led by the Visual and Performing Arts Team (VAPA) at the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE). The team consists of Lisa Gonzales, a coordinator in the Curriculum & Instruction Department, and admin and superstar Nicole Cota, who helps organize, arrange, and smooth out all professional development activities.
Thanks to 1stACT Silicon Valley, the City of San Jose, and Arts Council Silicon Valley, partnerships will be a strong component of this initiative as the SCCOE team can’t, and shouldn’t do the work alone. Additional partners in the county initiative that support professional development include the Montalvo Arts Center, San Jose State University, and the Stanford University School of Education.
