Over the Summer holidays, Sparc had a wonderful time working with Rhydyfelin Drama Workshop on their production Freebird. The piece, that explored ‘what it means to be free and caged’ was a devised piece co- created with Claire Hathway, the young people and the Sparc Team. 

Artist Hub

In August Sparc worked with WMC Creative Learning Team and artist Bethan Marlow as part of the Together Stronger Partnership to run Artist Hub. Bethan programmed a fantastic week of creative activities.

Brimming with dreamlike images that will haunt you long after the performance ends, The Devil’s Violin will take you on an epic journey to The Land Of No Return.





What is Sparc?

We are a Youth Arts project in Rhondda Cynon Taff. We work together & learn from each other. From the moment we enter the room we begin a journey of creativity, discovery & growth.

The Sparc team is an integral part of the community development work at Valleys Kids and we work with young people in a variety of settings.

Using creative techniques the children and young people explore different areas of their lives and the lives of others in a positive way.
