More than 40,000 people. Over 200 artists. Wondrous art made from light, amazing temporary sculptures, once-in-a-lifetime performances. Friendly crowds, food trucks, late night adventures. It's your city as you've always known it, but for one night in June it becomes a magical place that shows you its secrets and possibilities through art. Northern Spark is designed for the whole community to enjoy together, bringing contemporary art out into the streets for all to see. And it's free.
But something as good as Northern Spark is definitely not free to produce. We need your financial support. Your contribution today is essential to help build the solid foundation that will keep Northern Spark a vibrant part of our summer arts landscape for years to come.
My Night is a feature that lets you create a customized list of the projects you want to see at Northern Spark. You can add (or remove) projects using the "My Night" button — look for it on the Artists & Projects list (below each project image) as well as on individual project pages. Your "My Night" list can be printed, shared, or transferred to the festival’s mobile app.
