Positive Social Change
Founded in 2012, Sacramento Valley Spark grew out of a successful community effort to create an event where local art is showcased and attendees have the freedom to express themselves in the way they see fit.
We seek to create safe places where art and the individual can thrive without any boundaries. We want to educate those in our community on how to live your life the way you have always wanted, without judgement or prejudices. We strive to teach those who are hungry about art and new ways to create while bringing artists from all over Sacramento together into a collaborative space.
