Spark Weekend is the world’s first lifehacking events series. So far we’ve sparked Singapore, Seattle, D.C. and are now expanding to even more cities in 2015. For an even greater reach, Spark Talks from each event are filmed and published online for our global audience. We’re inspired by TED’s “ideas worth spreading” but focus instead on “actions worth spreading”.
