SPARKcon 2013

September 12-15, 2013

SPARKcon (Sept. 12-15) celebrates creativity in the NC Triangle. For four days, Raleigh’s Fayetteville Street, public spaces, clubs and stages will be filled with art, music, dance, film, fashion, design and more.


SPARKcon is an interdisciplinary creativity, art & design festival produced by the non-profit creativity incubator, Visual Art Exchange, in Raleigh NC. SPARKcon 2013 will be the 8th annual event and will be held Sept. 12-15 in downtown Raleigh.

September 2013 will be our eighth annual SPARKcon. Each year we activate an open-invitation group of volunteers. SPARKcon is open to any passionate individual or group who wants to get involved. We’re grass roots—our money comes from our pockets and the pockets of others excited to support local creativity. The ideas and showcases come from inspired people who have the ingenuity to say “What if…?” and the motivation to then help make it happen.

SPARKcon’s “creative potluck” of SPARKs or creative themes such as art, music, film, fashion, geek, circus, etc.  is put together by passionate individuals who volunteer their expertise and are deeply embedded in a specific local scene. Using a combination of networking and open calls for participants, organizers create diverse and representative events to show off local talent and connect disparate creative scenes.
