We are Sparc
We are Sparc - Valleys Kids Youth Arts project, we use theatre and art to explore different areas of our lives, we both create our own work and collaborate with others to ignite change through the arts in our communities and beyond.
Want to make a difference? Join our 16+ Sparc Plus programme, we offer mentoring and support, the chance to volunteer on all aspects of Youth Theatre productions as well as creating your own projects.
Each week we run Drama Workshops in our Valleys Kids centres in Penygraig, Dinas, Rhydyfelin and Penyrenglyn for children and young people aged between 7 and 13 - see events for more details.
Sparc in Schools
Sparc works closely with our local cluster schools in all our key areas. We run arts projects in schools including film, theatre and photography to work creatively with pupils.
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.
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.
