CREATIVE types across the district are being called to register for Spark:Ignite 2023.

Registration is now live for the annual symposium for the creative sector held in Leamington, Designed to turn creative talk into creative action, the event at the Royal Spa Centre in February, is designed to bring together and promote the growth of the arts and digital industries in the area.

The symposium, running for its fourth year, will be structured around five core themes: voice, placemaking, pathfinding, engagement, and innovation.

Primarily focusing on Warwick district, it 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.

David Guilding, Arts Manager at Warwick District Council (WDC), said: “We are delighted to be hosting the Spark Ignite event for the fourth year in a row, following the success of previous symposiums. Last year 338 delegates attended, networked, showcased their talent, and made connections to enhance and grow the sector.”

Coun Liam Bartlett, WDC’s spokesperson for arts and economy, added: “We have a wealth of talent right here on our doorstep that we’re proud to support with events such as these, so I’d encourage anyone interested in or currently working in the creative sector to sign up for your ticket today.”
