SPARKit!

SparkitSPARKit is a mobile trailer/ pop up park, with all of the amenities needed to turn a green/ common space in to an activated destination spot.

The SPARKit mobile trailer has been created as part of the Springboard for the Arts/Irrigate Project and the Trust for Public Land's work on the Green Line Parks and Commons Initiative.

The initiative is focused on imagining and creating new and innovative ways of utilizing public plazas and common spaces along University Ave.

The SPARKit mobile trailer is traveling through out the Twin Cities and beyond as a "Pop UP Park" that encourages creative exchange through games, art making, music and a festive atmosphere. With the a goal of celebrating the green and common spaces that currently exist and “spark” conversations about how we can cultivate even more.

The SPARKit is rentable and can come to your event to create a fun and festive atmosphere or as a social engagement tool to survey participants. We also can set up for different types of events, from meetings, to lectures series, to creative writing or poetry readings or to celebrate a community event? We would be happy to discuss any ideas that you might have and discover how the trailer might best suit your organization’s needs.

The following items will be part of the sPARKit Amenities:

  • Lightweight Colorful Teardrop Trailer Office
  • Battery Powered Sound and PA system
  • 12 Red Chairs and 6 Red bistro tables
  • 25 camp stools
  • Games
