    Facebook Groups Launched for Workstations

    In an effort to make it easier for Spark members to communicate and see what is going on with all the groups leading workstations and meetups we have created a number of FB groups. The goal eventually is to make the Spark website social media-like with a news feed showing updates / posts only from the stuff that you choose to follow. Until this is built out a few Working Members will move key posts over to blogs on the Spark site specific to each group so that people who are not on FB can follow the important stuff. These are meant for posting Wish List items, meeting times, classes & trainings, etc. specific to each station. See below for links to all the FB groups so you can join in. These are all open to the public so feel free to invite friends who you think would like to participate.

    Field Trip to AS220

    On Saturday May 20th a number of Spark members made the journey east an hour to visit AS220 in Providence. This creative community has been making it happen for artists with huge economic impact revitalizing what is now called the Downcity Arts District. AS220 has a campus of 4 buildings (which they own!) for performances, unjuried & uncensored gallery exhibitions, creative spaces for beyond-risk youth, and a makerspace-type set up called Industries with a phenomenal printshop. Read on for comments from people who attended to get a feel for what we learned and check out more pictures by clicking this link.
