To celebrate our 20th Birthday, ArtWorks,  Valleys Kids’ Youth Arts Project changed it’s name to Sparc with an amazing new website and re-brand which will take us into the 21st Century.

Please see full calendar of workshops and events

In 2017 and early 2018 a steering group of young people and volunteers worked with the incredible Welsh Design studio Webber Design to come up with name and brand that really represented us. We had been all kinds of different names including Bike Club, Drama Club and Valleys Kids and there were a number of arts organisations with very similar names so we wanted to capture what was unique and special about our youth arts project and Sparc was born.

So what is Sparc?

We are Valleys Kids youth arts project we use theatre and art to explore different areas of our lives, we create our own work and collaborate with other inspiring organisations to ignite change in our communities.
We are an integral part of the community development work of Valleys Kids and we work with young people in a variety of settings. Sparc is a partnership between professionally trained youth arts workers and young people together to engage and inspire each other.
