SPARC is a network whose purpose is to ignite and help sustain performing arts communities in rural and remote Ontario. The network has been designed so that it is owned, developed and controlled by YOU, the individuals, groups and organizations that make the performing arts happen in rural and remote areas. Your networking needs, development goals, and artistic interests will inform the growth and evolution of SPARC over the next few years.
