Extraordinary experiences for children, sparking creativity and change.

The Spark Arts for Children is a busy children’s art organisation based in the heart of the city of Leicester’s cultural quarter.

Over the last few years we have come a long way, from an organisation with an annual children’s arts festival to a fully-fledged, strategically positioned children’s arts organisation with a year-round multi-art form programme.

The Spark gives children opportunities to immerse themselves in the arts. We offer children spaces to discover their own skills, passions and potential, as audience, participants and creators of their own work.

We do this through commissioning and producing high quality, diverse and innovative programmes; organising a bold and imaginative children’s arts festival and by championing cultural education activity locally to ensure that children in Leicester/shire thrive through rich and adventurous experiences, no matter where they start in life.

ITC is a community of over 450 performing arts companies and producers. Join us to take advantage of the considerable benefits that we offer our members.
