City SPARKet Seeks Creative Activations



Spark Monument Circle and City Market (City SPARKet) invites crafters, makers, teachers, instructors, gamers, business owners, and artists of all kinds to share a fun, creative, and educational experience for downtown Indianapolis.  Participants selected for inclusion will be paid for their time and for needed supplies.

City SPARKet will take place on Wednesdays through October 25, 2017.  Activities on City Market’s East Plaza will occur Wednesdays from 10am to 4pm and activities on Monument Circle will occur during the evening from 5pm to 9pm.

Activities should:

  • Be suitable for public spaces and all ages (no explicit, religious, or political content)
  • Be free to the public
  • Be inexpensive to produce (no-cost partnership ideas are welcome as well)
  • Be led by a person 18 years or older, or with permission of a parent or guardian

Submissions will be reviewed based on the following criteria:

  • Does the idea fit within the spirit and themes of SPARK and the city?
  • Will it happen on one or more of the Wednesdays between now and the end of October?
  • Is it social, inclusive, and engaging?
  • Is it easy enough to implement?
  • Will it appeal to people, especially families?
  • Is it connected to the site and to the community?
  • What are the costs for fee and materials?

To submit your idea, visit and fill out a brief form.

Please contact Amber Janzen,, with any questions.
