The first ever SPARK withIN youth conference is Sunday, October 28th at the Surrey Arts Centre. It begins at 10am with an amazing lineup of speakers (representing a variety of careers and experiences) and performers (from a variety of artistic genres), followed by an interactive networking session from 3pm to 5pm, featuring a diverse collection of professionals and exhibitors.

In between the opening and closing ceremonies of SPARK withIN, there will be plenty of opportunities to connect with peers from around Greater Vancouver; whether you are enjoying our complimentary hot lunch within the inspiring confines of the art gallery, or as you pose for group selfies with fellow attendees at our media wall and photo booth.

SPARK withIN is the initiative of two non-profit societies: AltruYouth Association and SONG Creative Mentorship. SPARK (which stands for Speakers, Performers, Aspirers, Role-models, Knowledge-sharers) will truly be a game-changing day for young people to share their dreams, unlock their passions and discover their pathways!
