About this Event

Sparkfest has been designed to provide opportunities to delve more deeply into the experiences, outcomes and workings of the Fire Starter Festival. As part of work for Collective Leadership for Scotland we have been exploring “How can the arts and creativity support system change?”

This morning event will focus on the conditions for hosting events and warmly invite all those who hosted an event, wanted to host an event or are interested in hosting an event in the future.

This morning session will include:

  • Experiences of hosting - an opportunity to share experiences (the good, the bad & the ugly)
  • Experiences from The Welsh Government - igniting their first Fire Starter events
  • Leadership for Creative Engagement: highlighting what leadership enables creativity & risk taking, and encourages staff to host not only Fire Starter events, but engaging, creative events across public services. Hear from the Director and Depute Director and others leaders from Directorate for Early Learning and Childcare in the Scottish Government about the Balancing Act and citizen engagement.
  • Where next for Fire Starter Festival: what’s needed and why?

This 3 day mini-festival will:

• Provide background information and data on the Fire Starter Festival

• Review our inquiry into how the arts and creativity support system change?

• Reasons to get involved? This will include feedback from former hosts.

• Case studies of events including: partnerships, methodologies, and examples of when things didn’t go to plan.

• Workshops and taster sessions on how to plan and facilitate engaging events including methodologies such as: world café, fishbowl, forum theatre, dialogue walks, street wisdom and liberating structures.

• Consider the potential reach and growth of the festival
