The upcoming edition of Spark! will include the debut of “Sparkplug,” a speed-speaker series to jumpstart our conversations in creative collaboration. Four speakers, representing a wide spectrum of Berkshire business, non-profits, and arts leadership will talk four minutes on the themes of Creativity and Innovation.

These Sparkplug presenters will then lead our break-out networking sessions. Check our website for an update on who’s speaking, and be at MASS MoCA to experience the Sparkplug debut!

A new opportunity to learn, a new resource brought to you by Berkshire Creative.

If you haven’t visited MASS MoCA’s Beer Garden yet this summer, here is a great chance to see this work of art in action. Though The Chalet is part of MASS MoCA’s “Oh Canada” celebration, it is an exhibition in itself, rich in cultural detail and frivolity. It’s also stocked with Canada’s best beers, and is always full of fun people. Come be one.



We specifically scheduled (rescheduled) this Spark! to coincide with North Adam’s hip and happenin’ monthly arts festival, DownStreet Art. “Get Down!” with DSA to see and learn about the elaborate murals popping up all over the city this summer. Specials at local businesses will encourage you to shop the streets and stay for dinner following our event.


Where: MASS MoCA’s Beer Garden, 1040 MASS MoCA Way – Courtyard C, North Adams
