About The Spark
Igniting the potential of all children through extraordinary arts experiences.
The Spark Arts for Children is a busy children's art organisation based in the LCB Depot (Leicester City Council managed workspace for creative industries), in the heart of the city of Leicester's cultural quarter.
Over the last few years we have come a long way, from an organisation with an annual children's arts festival to a fully-fledged, strategically positioned children's arts organisation with a year-round multi-art form programme.
We promote a wide-ranging programme of work including an annual arts festival for children across schools and city venues, artist residencies in libraries, touring new theatre productions for children to city, county and east midland locations and venues. We also provide leadership and direction for the development of The City Classroom, Leicester's Cultural Education Partnership.
