Symposium for the Performing Arts in Rural Communities

Haliburton, Ontario
October 27 to 30, 2016
We are thrilled that more than 30 speakers from across Canada – and internationally –  will be participating, providing 20 workshops and 3 thought-provoking and informative plenaries, and a broad range of regional performances and entertainment – all taking place within a rural context.
A key goal of SPARC is to create an environment where people can network: exchange ideas, find opportunities for collaboration, discuss solutions to tricky problems and identify BIG ideas. You will have an opportunity to meet people engaged in the performing arts from rural communities throughout the province and across the country.

Whether your goals are professional development, learning strategies to attract new audiences, innovative approaches to sustainability, opportunities for information exchange, or developing creative methods for marketing campaigns or mentoring programs, it is our hope and belief that this year’s program will facilitate them.
