Rising Sparks

The Rising Sparks Programme was established to develop visible pathways into creative careers for all of Cork’s communities. Through a structured programme of hands-on creative practice, skills development and free access to benchspace facilities – Rising Sparks aims to support transitions into long-term creative livelihoods for individuals from underrepresented communities in the creative enterprise sector. The Rising Sparks Programme is made possible by the Cork Arts Fund 2021 – supported by the Anonymous Donor Fund at The Community Foundation for Ireland.
