Northern Spark Festival

Northern Spark is a free, dusk to dawn, participatory arts festival that presents visual arts, performance, films, and interactive media indoors and outdoors in both Minneapolis and St. Paul. In 2011, during the course of one night, there were 50,000 visits to 100 projects by more than 200 artists at 34 venues… In 2012, Northern Spark takes place from dusk, Saturday, June 9, to dawn, Sunday, June 10.

The theme of Northern Spark in 2012 is “Think and Wonder.” We are looking for projects that are sited/performed in public space and engage a broad public audience in that space. Projects can be in any medium or discipline.
