|By Alex Coop - Staff Writer | June 23, 2016|
The SPARC Network (Supporting Performing Arts in Rural Communities) has announced that it is embarking on an exciting new project thanks to a three-year $548,000 Grow grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
In a June 22 news release, it said the grant was awarded in late 2015, and will allow SPARC to expand and strengthen a province-wide network of performing arts creators, producers, presenters and animateurs in the four disciplines - theatre, music, dance and media arts.
Some of the grant money has gone into hiring Greg Thomas, SPARC's new network coordinator.
