About Our Charity

The Spark gives children opportunities to immerse themselves in the arts by experiencing a wide range of high quality work that inspires, empowers and educates.

Through the presentation of an annual festival, a cultural education and community programme and through the production of our own work we offer children spaces to discover their own skills, passions and potential, as audience, participants and creators of their own work.

The Spark works to increase its impact on the creation and presentation of arts for children locally, in the UK, in Europe and Internationally.

The Spark Arts For Children is a registered charity.
