Art Spark is a bi-monthly mingling for artists of all sorts to meet, discuss, blather, applaud and plot the growth of the Arts in Portland, Oregon.

This event was born out of the Creative Capacity Initiative; a conversation to address making creativity and innovation a stronger regional value by assessing our region’s strengths and weaknesses, framing problems and brainstorming solutions. Participants in the Creative Capacity discussions indicated we needed a place where artists and art supporters could meet on a regular basis to connect with each other and the greater creative community. With support from the City of Portland, the Regional Arts & Culture Council launched a monthly (now bi-monthly) networking opportunity for artists to address this need.

Art Spark is becoming the networking event for artists and art lovers of all backgrounds and varieties. People are making important professional connections and discovering more of what is happening in Portland’s creative community. See current schedule and venues a website below.
