Sparc Love Letters

To Artworks/Sparc,

How I've missed everyone!

It was so good to see how everything is the same yet not, seeing you guide the new generation!

I'm so lucky to have been with you guys for all of these years, you've inspired me to be more confident, to reach for the impossible. I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for you amazing people!

Thank you for giving me the fantastic memories that I look back on fondly and tell everyone who will listen.

Forever grateful,


Dear Sparc,

I do love the colouring and sticking.  

I do love the shows that I have seen with you.

I do absolutely love the shows.

I love the room and like Miranda and I love Claire and mummy.

Love and Kisses

What can I say!  A vibrant, modern, beautiful design intertwined with a message that runs to our core!

Sparc has been a home from home for so many for so long.  A place for people to share their stories in a place where they have been to feel welcome and safe.

Their thoughts, their hopes, their dreams and their aspirations have all been heard and supported by a group of mentors who really care and have a passion for the arts running through their veins.

Artworks will always hold the most special place in my heart, but Sparc will be in my dreams and my hopes for the future.

Best wishes and Happy 20th Birthday


To Sparc

I absolutely love the fact I can be myself and I've met so many amazing people.

P.S I'm gonna marry Miranda or Gemma

Love Eloise

Artworks gave me a passion for drama, starting in my teenage years, and carried on into adulthood. It was the enthusiasm of the people involved and the tremendous support and encouragement that I loved the most.

Miranda wasn't just a drama teacher and youth worker, she was a mentor, a friend and an inspiration.

One of the proudest moments of my life was being given the chance to travel to Botswana to bring storytelling through drama and dance to the children at their schools. It was something that will stay with me forever.  I can't imagine having that opportunity without Valleys Kids and the Artworks team.

It's such a privilege to of had the chance to be part of Artworks and hope generations for years to come are so lucky as I have been.

Love you all.


To Artworks/Sparc,

I love being here as I can always be myself. The opportunities I've been give are amazing!  Such as going to North Wales and now going to Tate! I've met new and fantastic people and I can not wait to experience more.
