The Creatives

Celebrating the people & programs of CreaTV San Jose

The Creatives

It’s A Wrap!

On April 26, 2018, more than 200 media makers, community leaders and supporters gathered at Forager in downtown San Jose, in celebration of the power of local media and in honor of our unique community storytellers, at the re-vamped and re-imagined Creatives.

Guests were treated to a fun and interactive evening of community connection in a casual and contemporary environment with locally-sourced food and drink stations, activity booths and hands-on media making.

Participants “light painted” their vision of the future, expressed themselves by going instantly live on TV, got creative in front of the camera and served as the evening’s hosts as part of our live media editing experiment.

The event culminated with the infamous bestowing of the Creative Awards. Winners were announced in four categories including Creative Series, Creative Short, Creative Special and Creative Student High School. Winners received a hand-blown art glass award and a $1,000 prize.

The prestigious Leigh Weimers’ Community Media Champion Award was presented to Steve Wymer. In addition to being a trusted advisor and staunch supporter, Steve stewarded the largest philanthropic contribution ever made to CreaTV, during a critical organizational transition, in 2016. Few people have had such a profound impact on the organization, and for this, we are forever grateful.

We would like to thank everyone who made this event possible including our sponsors, board, staff and crew, members, producers and supporters.
