"For one week each year, the Spark Festival of Electronic Music and Arts gathers creators and performers of new media arts from around the world to the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul (USA) to showcase their work to the public.
Spark celebrates all uses of new technologies for artistic expression, including music, video, theater, dance, plastic artworks, and more. Centered around Minneapolis’ west bank theater district and the adjoining University of Minnesota West Bank Arts Quarter, Spark presents a wide variety of performances, workshops, discussions, and scholarly lectures. Nearly all Spark events are free, and all Spark events are open to the general public."
