Writers and Musicians

THE SPARK: Live from Detroit is a live performance television and radio program distributed to a national audience in partnership with Detroit Public Television.

Under the umbrella of a different featured theme each week, an exciting mix of nationally-renowned authors and musicians perform and share meaningful stories of the ideas that drive them forward on the path to creative breakthrough.

 

Where Big Ideas Still Have Room to Be Born.

Produced for a national audience, a vital force behind The Spark is the delivery of big themes told through a Detroit lens. Each episode will showcase the artist’s work through that week’s selected theme–themes culled from the emerging narrative of urban creativity now driving Detroit and other urban cities.

Each episode of The Spark: Live from Detroit will include a closing segment highlighting a local social entrepreneur or difference maker putting the episode’s theme to work on a grass-roots level. Their inspiring stories–mirroring the artists’ drive to creative breakthrough—-will be featured in greater detail on The Spark website.


A 360-Degree Storytelling Medium

The Spark: Live From Detroit will be a 360-degree storytelling medium, told through public television, radio, online website, social media channels including YouTube, Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, email, podcasts and RSS, live Detroit events, and ultimately, traveling stages to other cities.
