I was so overjoyed to be filling a great big empty space with the ideas and creativity of the group I worked with over the SPARK residency period. The open space, the wonderful floor surface and view plus the endless openness and support of the LOTW crew made it the perfect potion for a creative development period. THANK YOU so much!! I'm grateful for this extremely valuable time.  - Dianne Busuttil, SPARK#5 artist

As a regionally based group of professional artists, our SPARK residency provided invaluable opportunity to extend our networks and make visible our practice and our work in a broader context. The risks of traveling into a new context to artistically experiment and explore  was mitigated by the inclusion in this program that supports artists to extend their practice and take bold steps in to work in its early stages. It was a platform to delve deep in to our collaboration in a new and supportive context. - Adam Deusien from Lingua Franca, SPARK#5 artist
