The Beginning of Heart of Chaos
Heart of Chaos (HOC) was created in 2003 with the financial & inspirational support of Catalyst for Youth, a 501 (c) 3 California corporation. The core idea was to provide a venue for emerging and under-recognized artists, writers, poets, musicians, performance artists and photographers to showcase and market their work. Mentoring through communication with established artists enriches both parties and fosters new ideas and inspiration.
Growing Artisan Collective
Our artisan collective is a growing group of dynamic and wildly creative people of all mediums. We have put on many solo, group and community exhibits as well as San Jose’s 1st and 2nd Annual Chalk Art Festival. Check out our events section to find out what is coming next. Artists of all mediums are welcome to apply for volunteer based artist membership, learn more here. If you would like to partner with Heart of Chaos please contact us.
Heart of Chaos is a volunteer run organization. Our livelihood is based upon volunteers and donations to the non-profit Catalyst for Youth. We are currently seeking funding to support a space of our own.
