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.

    This was a fun trip. It was good to get out with the other Spark members to view things of common interest outside of Spark. It is inspiring and a learning tool.

    What a fun field trip! It was great to get a feel for how Spark and AS220 are similar and different. Spark is definitely starting out with a technological advantage in 2016.
