Spark:Ignite 2024 is a one-day symposium that will take place at the Royal Spa Centre in Leamington on Thursday 15 February 2024. It once again aims to turn creative talk into creative action, and galvanise Warwick District’s creative business community around a common purpose; promotion and growth of the sector.

The day’s content will be structured around five core themes; voice, placemaking, pathfinding, engagement, and innovation, and will be presented via a series of presentations, workshops, demonstrations, discussions, networking opportunities, performances, and exhibitions. 

Spark:Ignite is aimed at people who work in or are interested in craft, film, TV, video, radio, photography, museums, galleries, libraries, music, performing arts, visual arts, advertising and marketing, architecture, gaming, product design, graphic design, fashion, IT software and service, and publishing.

The event will largely focus on Warwick District, but is open to anyone who wants to find out more about the area’s creative scene and how they can help celebrate, promote, and grow the sector.

Date: Thursday 15 February 2024
