Some of you may be wondering what exactly SPARKcon is. It is an interdisciplinary festival by Visual Art Exchange in Raleigh, NC. Volunteers from different art disciplines such as circus, fashion, geek, poetry and many more come together to express these creative arts and those who have thought to showcase “What if…?” and follow the necessary steps to make it all happen. SPARKcon 2013 was the 8th annual event and had such an amazing turn out! Make sure that you start planning to get a group together for SPARKcon 2014! Check the website for updates on the upcoming schedule of events, as well as other opportunities through Visual Art Exchange.
Much of the festivities take place on Fayetteville Street, Hargett Street, Martin Street and Davis Street. Visit http://www.visualartexchange.org for more information.
