SPARKcon is about showcasing our local talent and coming up with ideas to foster it. Over the past 6 years, ideaSPARK results have impacted and influenced the development of the area in abstract and concrete ways, including the design of the Raleigh City Plaza site and the inclusion of local designers in recent city proposal requests.

My BIG fat secret - Secret & anonymous comments hand-written by the community and gathered to display as one large art installation.
Sleddogg Marketing and Cynergie Studio have teamed up to help add an element of Idea and a layer of fun by sponsoring an ideasSPARK event — My BIG fat secret (MBFS), a way for SPARKcon participants to create “thoughtful” art together. Pre-printed post cards (scattered throughout downtown Raleigh and found at pop-up MBFS booths ), have an area for participants to write their anonymous secrets. The MBFS website ( www.ideasparkraleigh.com ) will display the post cards so every thought is captured and publicly available. The idea is modeled after PostSecret, an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard. The post cards will be gathered to form a mural, and displayed as one large art installation.

Raleigh Knowledge Share & Connect - drop some knowledge but don’t forget to pick some up! - Mash-up event at Architect Bar and Social House 108 1/2 E Hargett St.
Is there something you have always wanted to learn? Do you know how to do something that you’ve never had an opportunity to share with anyone else? Raleigh Knowledge Share is a platform to help connect people in the community based on what they know how to do and what they are interested in learning.
How it will work:
Drop by the Knowledge Share tent on Fayetteville St. either Friday or Saturday; let us know things you are interested in learning and things you know and would like to share with people. It’s as simple as that!
Sunday afternoon, at the Architect Bar located on 108 1/2 E Hargett St, all of the participants will have an opportunity to connect. At the beginning, everyone will be matched up based on overlapping interests, but as the session progresses we will encourage everyone to establish connections with as many people as possible, giving everyone an opportunity to stumble upon unearthed interests!
Sunday, September 16th, 4-6p
