Eventbrite - Spark International Festival of Media, Arts & Design / Registration

Spark week is all about sharing, inspiring and creating - and it's nearly here.  The festival is free to attend and open to all, though there are limited places at each event. Workshops are nearly full so have a look at the Speaker&Events page and find the last slots before they get taken.

We're kicking off at 9am on the 10 August with an official welcome followed by Yvonne Todd (amazing artist and photographer).  And there's no stopping from there - with a week packed full of presentations, events, exhibitions and workshops until we party till the wee hours with Chelsea Jade and Boycrush at Nivara Lounge on the night of Friday 14 Aug.

If you want to attend a workshop - make sure you follow the links on this site to secure your place.

Come along and join us at Spark week to hear successful artists, musicians, journalists, broadcasters, designers and film-makers share their insights, experiences and tips to inspire you in your own creative pursuits. That is what Spark festival is all about.

17 years on and the ideas are still flowing - presentations, workshops, exhibitions, music performances and events are all taking shape. We’re excited about the programme and the opportunity to once again bring creative minds to Hamilton, inspiring and rewarding the like-minded, on campus and in the surrounding community.

The full programme is online and you can order a copy of the printed programme by signing up to the newsletter above. You can follow us on social media and connect with us during the festival #shareinspirecreate #spark15

So mark your diaries for 10-14 August, grab your tickets or bring your student ID - and we’ll see you real soon!
