Our community events are designed to inspire, spread literacy, and celebrate the talent in our West Central and Spokane community.
The entire month of August // Tue. - Sat., 12 - 5 PM
We are thrilled to be working with a crew of Computer Science majors from Whitworth University this summer. They're here to help you tinker with tech! They can introduce you to our interesting menagerie of gadgets or help you solve problems with your own computer or electronic device. Noon to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, all summer long!
August is our birthday month and we’d like to spend the month celebrating the Spark Central community—and that means you! Come in during the month of August for creative activities, like paper circuits, card making, and mono-printing. Enter to win raffle prizes, like a family pass for Raptor Reef Water Park or dinner for two at the Wandering Table.
FRI. AUG. 18 / / 5 - 7 PM
AGES 6 - 17 / / Bring your curiosity, imagination, and thirst for adventure, and we will supply the rest! If you have ever been curious about role-playing games, join us to experience this unique form of game-playing — we'll build a shared narrative using cooperative problem solving, exploration, imagination, and rich social interaction.
FIRST SATURDAY OF THE MONTH // 3 PM
GRADES 8-12 // Take your creative writing to the next level with support from other teen writers and published local authors. Hosted by Spokane poet Kat Smith. You bring the ideas and we’ll bring the snacks!
THU. SEP. 21 // 7 PM
Pivot, a live storytelling series in Spokane, invites you to their second open mic story slam. Are you eager to tell a story of your own? Community members are invited to tell a true story from their own lives (up to 5 minutes long) in front of an audience. If you'd like to tell a story, show up a little early to throw your name in a hat, and as many storytellers as time allows will have an opportunity to share.
Last year we launched Spark Salon, our annual fundraiser and paddle raise, to much success. We can't wait to share our 2018 plans! Stay tuned for a date and an announcement of special guests.
