About Arts and Entertainment
From entertainers using their fame to help others to artists whose creativity makes life better for everyone, Sparkt's Arts & Entertainment section will inspire you with uplifting stories that encourage you to get involved, too.
In the Arts & Entertainment section, you'll find out which famous actress leveraged her giant social media following to grant the classroom wishes of teachers in low-income school districts. You'll be astounded by the colorful paintings created by a young man with autism who is now selling his art to benefit the people who have helped him. You'll meet the Kenyan artists who are making a living crafting show-stopping sculptures out of discarded flip flops and the teens who staged a concert to feed hungry people in their town. You'll be moved by the yarn artists whose international crochet project comforted victims of a mass shooting and the woman whose crowd-stitch project recruited people from all over to honor the life of a 99-year old quilter by finishing the projects left undone at her death.
And just like all of our Sparkt stories, we'll give you the information you need to support an effort, join it, or spark new ideas to tap into the arts and make a difference where you live.
