Spark, Calgary’s science centre, is a city jewel. When it opened in its current location in 2011, it was the first purpose-built science centre in the country in 25 years. It houses the largest dome theatre in western Canada. Spark attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors a year and launches blockbuster shows. It changes lives and opens doors to the world of science, technology and invention.
Like every creative project, Spark requires an infusion of new ideas to thrive in an environment of continuous change – especially when it comes to engaging adult audiences and supporting the creation of new ventures, jobs and economic opportunities.
That’s what this Roadmap for the 2020s does. It realigns the daily successes at Spark with an ambitious new aspiration.
