Supporting Young Creatives


NewSparks is a new funding initiative for Bath Spa graduates and alumni to support them in the next steps of their creative career. The initiative runs alongside our Digital SparkFest festival activity. 

Tickets for SparkFest Digital are free. Instead we are inviting our audiences to invest in the creatives of tomorrow by donating to this new funding initiative: NewSparks.

Money raised by NewSparks will be available for SparkFest entrants to apply to in order to kick start their creative projects upon leaving University. 

This is your way to empower and support the young creatives in SparkFest to forge forward in their professional careers.

Your donation can be crucial in plugging the missing gaps in our graduates and alumni's developing projects. Once our students have left University this funding initiative can be there as a helping hand to enable their opportunities and ongoing professional development. 

Examples of what your donations can help support: 

  • Registration fees for festivals 
  • Print and advertising
  • Industry Mentoring support
  • Production costs (set, costume, props)
  • Rehearsal space costs


We know its reward enough to know that your are enabling a young creative with their project and career, but we feel you deserve even more so please check out our rewards section.

Help us succeed!

Thank you so much for your support! You can also help us get the word out by sharing on social media or telling your friends about it - the more people who know, then the more we can support these young creatives in the next steps of their creative journey.
