Recognizing and Promoting Creativity in Youth To ESTABLISH a non-profit organization promoting regional creativity in the Arts and Sciences. We seek to INSPIRE Bay Area residents and businesses to recognize and celebrate the CREATIVITY of our YOUTH and financially support opportunities to grow and develop their creative talents. Early recognition for creativity is critical to enabling the confidence to pursue ideas and develop talent.
The Bay Area Creative Foundation was formed to recognize and support the creative spirit and ability of our youth, with a focus on reaching underserved middle and high school students. This focus is to address the societal shift born out of the hypergrowth and ease of digital consumption which has limited the motivation to develop individual creativity by crafting one’s own art, music or science. Adding to the problem, many schools today do not possess the resources to sufficiently acknowledge and grow excellence in the arts and sciences. A new venue and support program for recognizing, encouraging and supporting creativity in youth would help spark the inspiration we all need as a society. The BACF will lead the way in the Bay Area by stimulating and recognizing creativity in our youth and community.
