Welcome to Spark Central News

Hi there! Nice to see you, again.

You might remember we had a news page before our merger. We decided to put it on the back burner while we focused on other, equally cool and exciting stuff. But now that we have our feet under us again, we're back!

You might be thinking, "News? We come to Spark Central for innovation, creativity, and imagination! Not news." We ask you to not be fooled by the word NEWS. We're not sharing the normal who's-doing-what-when stuff, we're sharing super rad Spark Central News, which means you'll be hearing about:

  • our fun and innovative programs
  • inspiring ideas/cool stuff to make and do
  • patrons (that's you!)
  • superhero volunteers
  • our all-star supporters
  • and a monthly update from the Engine Room (a note from our Executive Director, Brooke Matson).

So stay tuned. Leave a comment. Hang out.

But before I let you go,  I'd like to share a fun thing a couple of us around here are doing that we think you'd love. You might have heard of NaNo WriMo, where you write a novel in the month of November, but have you heard of the much less daunting #Inktober? The deal is you make a little ink drawing every day for the month of October. And they invite you to join at any point! Like today! Like us, it's very inclusive. 

Come by Spark Central and use our pens to do a little doodle. By the way, did you know doodling is one of the best ways to ignite creativity?
