Since 2011, Northern Spark has created a spirit of adventure and belonging, with the help of hundreds of artists and community partners.

The goal of the apprentice program is to share the systems we’ve built over the years and to foster an exchange of skills and community knowledge in the neighborhoods where the festival is taking place.
