Now in its fourth year, New Zealand's SPARK Festival brings media artists from around the country and overseas together to discuss new work and ideas in creative practice. This year's draft programme is now online and packs 9 speakers and 24 proposals into the three-day event. Additionally, the day before the festival will see the first gathering of the newly formed Aotearoa Digital Arts network. Those of us not in Hamilton, NZ, can participate in the ADA symposium virtually, but it doesn't look like SPARK is offering remote participation. However, they are still calling for video 'blips' that will be screened between speakers, so if you're a blip-maker, you could be part of the bigger spark. - Helen Varley Jamieson
