With support from The John Salmon Fund, The Spark Arts for Children were able to carry out an art and performance festival at The BRITE Centre in Braunstone, an area of educational and economic disadvantage. The grant went towards the salary of the Project Co-ordinator and Artist Facilitator, costume and music hires, performance fees, participation materials and venue hire. The Spark Arts worked with local people to design and promote the day enabling families to work together making decisions and producing events.
Two professional performances took place, bringing high quality performance to people who are unlikely to be able to make the journey into the city. Each performance was followed by an interactive arts participation event planned and promoted by a group of local families, giving people an opportunity to participate creatively.
