"Stories Worth Telling"
"Spark is a dynamic, collaborative hub on upper State Street; a place where people of diverse backgrounds come together for the common purpose of sharing, making, and creating in community. Spark offers New London the unique opportunity to support and join community collaboration to help change the course of our increasingly polarized lives." - Ashby Carilse (Board Member)
