SPARK - cross-sectorial laboratory
WHAT IS SPARK?
WHAT IS IT?
- Spark is a cross-sectorial laboratory gathering participants from different backgrounds and disciplines, to focus on a specific contemporary circus or outdoor arts related - topic, with the primary objective to bring concrete solutions or responses forward. It is hosted by a network member and is run over three days.
- Spark provides an opportunity to connect contemporary circus and outdoor arts workers, along with artists and stakeholders from other disciplines (architects, urbanists, local elected officials, et al.) to foster cross-sectorial collaborations and the circulation of ideas, knowledge, practices, experiences, and approaches.
- Spark contributes to furthering the advocacy work of Circostrada on key sectoral issues and aims to lay the foundation of an open advocacy platform for contemporary circus and outdoor arts workers.
