Poland Project


Creative Spark founder Rob Heighington is going to Poland for approximately ten days to facilitate two “train the trainer” workshops to run the Creative Spark Art Program designed specifically for Ukrainian refugees.

Developed over the past 15 years the Creative Spark Art Program can be summarized as ‘highly successful’.   Creative Spark evaluation methods “are in the top 5% for evidence-based research” as per data analyst at the University of Alberta and Edmonton Healthy Schools program. The Creative Spark Art Program has received multiple awards and numerous grants including two from Bell Let’s Talk and from the Government of Alberta.

Our “Train the Trainer” knowledge comes from collaborating with leading experts and their proven success in facilitating such programs. More information will be provided as we script the “Train the Trainer” sessions to run our award winning Creative Spark Art Program.


Having lost our principal sponsor (for good reason, large US firm struggling with supply chain issues) we are actively seeking a new principal sponsor to fund 75% to 100% of our total costs. Approximately $20,000*. The project has two elements; 1. Train the Trainer, and; 2. Trained Facilitator Classes. Each element costing approximately $10,000.

*costs may vary depending on time of year including travel and accommodation, final destination and facilities required. Rob Heighington receives no income from his work, volunteers and volunteer facilitators are paid an honourarium. All costs are shared with principal sponsor via our registered accountant in Canada.

The Creative Spark Art Program is intended to run in Warsaw Poland where our trained facilitators take the Creative Spark Art Program directly to Ukrainian refugees.

Please Note: Funds designated for the Poland Project that exceed actual costs are used directly by Creative Spark Art and Mental Health programs currently planned – see our website at www.creativespark.ca/projects/

DISCLAIMER: The Creative Spark Logon for Mental Wellness program is 100% volunteer. Please note: we do not offer mental health treatment or advice in anyway.  We do, however, have what we call a ‘Safety Net’ which is designed to provide, when possible, a link to local mental health resources within each community Creative Spark is being offered.
