The Spark Arts for Children

Igniting the potential of all children through extraordinary arts experiences.

Founded 2004

  • Mission statement

    The Spark gives children, from birth to teenage years, 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 the space 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 and beyond.

  • Aims

    The Spark Arts for Children aims to:

    • commission and produce high quality, diverse and innovative programmes for children in venues, schools and community settings which provide the opportunity to experience the richness of the arts.
    • organise a children’s arts festival each year valued locally for its contribution to the quality of life for children through creating experience, enrichment and inspiration for them.
    • ensure that children in Leicester/shire thrive through rich and adventurous experiences, and to advocate for children’s rights to enjoy artistic opportunities as audiences, and as creators.
