ArtSpark began in 2005 as an eight week new play competition, and by 2008, grew into a 12 week collaborative competition composed of individuals in theatre, music, visual art, video game design, and marketing.

To aid Creative Teams along the way the Foundation provided a budget, workspace, mentors, industry workshops, and equipment to help facilitate the process.
