musicSPARK Call for Talent is open!

musicSPARK is looking for local (based in NC), emerging artists of all musical genres to play our festival. SPARKcon is Sept 13 through 16 this year and will be held in the Warehouse District of downtown Raleigh.  Our Call for Talent will close on June 30 and invitations to play will be issued by July 16.

Visual Art Exchange produces SPARKcon as part of its mission to support and provide opportunities for artists and connect the community to the arts. This festival gives an unusual opportunity for the community to be directly involved with a public art project in downtown Raleigh. SPARKcon is unique because it is an event fully created by artists, who are encouraged to use their unique creative talents to create their own programs. SPARKcon was founded in 2006 by Aly and Beth Khalifa.
