How we work with Artists

There are a number of different ways we work with artists and each relationship varies depending on the needs of the artist/company/project itself.

Some examples of how we've worked with artists include:

  • Fundraising support
  • Commissions for new work
  • In-kind support and advice (incl. dramaturgy & producing)
  • CPD and training events
  • Residencies in school and community settings
  • Programming within The Spark Festival
  • Support through the Vital Spark programme - learn more about Vital Spark here

These relationships begin either with an artist call out or a conversation. Sign up for the Industry Newsletter to receive updates on all artist call out opportunities and/or drop us an email on tara@thesparkarts.co.uk to introduce yourself.

If you're interested in having your work programmed in The Spark Festival email programme@thesparkarts.co.uk . Please note we are unlikely to programme work we've not seen live so please let us know where and when we might be able to see your piece.
