Chattanooga’s arts community announced today that spark, a right brain celebration, is slated for April 11 through 21, 2013. This collaborative, multi-day arts festival, previously called HATCH Chatt, has issued a call for arts-related events. Programming will encompass literature, technology, history, visual arts, performing arts, music, culinary arts and more. Following last year’s great success, with more than 200 events hosted throughout downtown Chattanooga, spark will continue to highlight the community’s broad spectrum of quality cultural events in 2013. By exposing the region to a plethora of high-caliber, exciting, arts-focused events, spark will present and promote Chattanooga’s intrinsic creativity to citizens and visitors.
spark will include two anchor events, the 4 Bridges Arts Festival and the Celebration of Southern Literature, and culminate in a grand finale at Ross’ Landing on Saturday, April 20. So far, the celebration is sponsored by Benwood Foundation; Lyndhurst Foundation; ArtsBuild; Rock City; Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel, P.C.; and the Chattanooga Convention & Visitor’s Bureau. Chattanooga Presents, spark production partner, is calling for event programming. To be considered for participation, visit www.sparkartschattanooga.com to fill out a short application.
