We had an amazing time bringing the community together this past weekend as we all talked, laughed and painted. Everyone really thought that the S.P.A.R.K. NC Project was a great idea to make bus stop areas more interactive. We expressed to the how Kaboom and their Play-everywhere grant made it possible. We would like to thank everyone that was a part of this process because it wasn’t easy! Thank you to Quick Shop & University Park (Dooby Shop) for allowing us to paint on their property. Also thanks to Fit and Fun Playscapes, Studio DBS, Let’s Ride Records, Blaklaybel,GDMG,DB Images, TUK & The Konnected Team!
