SPARK is back!

We are thrilled to announce that SPARK was awarded a $15,000 Flexible Support Grant from MRAC for a Short Film and Community Workshop. This summer we rehearsed and filmed a short, goofy film titled "I dream of pizza" as a celebration of physicality and playfulness with the goal of making people smile. Check back on our Events Page (info coming soon) for info on the premiere and community workshop this March 2024. 

Help us raise $5,000 to complete the budget!

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. 


       


We are in the process of making plans for 2024.

Do you want to help us in this relaunch?
