Our Passions

STORIES. The American Spark Project is the 501(c)(3) nonprofit arm of American Spark, a storytelling series spotlighting artists and their crafts. They’re stories of creativity as redemption, creativity as expression, and creativity as connection.

MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS. Countless young people are never given an opportunity or encouragement to engage in the arts. Our Instrument Giveaway is just one of the ways in which we tell them: You can do this!
