General meetings are held every third Monday of the month for people to bring ideas, meet others through open-source planning process, so everyone can join the party and showcase their unique talents!
Each year, SPARKcon features more than 2,000 artists in 200+ events. Each segment of the creative community plans their own “SPARKs” to showcase their talent.
SPARKcon’s goal is to connect and educate emerging, creative leaders through training, interdisciplinary collaboration, and an open source structure leading to the creation of a unique four-day creativity explosion in Downtown Raleigh. Each category, or group of activities, is called a “SPARK” (musicSPARK, fashionSPARK, etc.) and is organized by volunteers who create programming that best represents their art form, whether a performance, an exhibition, showcase. or interactive digital game.
This open source leadership structure allows any organizer, talent or audience member to create and add value to the experience in their own way.
