Spark 2011 Creative Arts Festival

This festival is designed to allow people with a disability the chance to find their voice through the creative outlets of music, dance, art and performance. In a positive and safe environment, people with a disability can come together to share their stories, interests and ideas and be given the opportunity to share their experiences.
Held over three days, people with a disability will work and interact with professional and accomplished community artists who have been drawn from numerous artistic mediums to provide workshops throughout SPARK.

The aim of the workshops will be to take every festival participant through a series of sessions including the process and production of an original CD recording. Each step in the process will build skills and encourage each individual to tap into their creativity.

Professional artists will be presenting workshops and performing for the festival participants as well as working side by side and in support of participants. On the final day of the SPARK Festival the people with a disability will have the opportunity to express their skills through a performance and presentation.

Wednesday 26 October to Friday 28 October
Tops Conference Centre, Stanwell Tops.
