WHO WE ARE

ABOUT LIGHTSPARK The Lightspark Foundation is dedicated to improving social relations through story. We believe that the path to social progress—including innovation and conflict resolution—is guided by empathy, and we see story as the straightest line to achieving it. Guided by our core values of transparency, integrity, diversity, veracity, affinity, and humanity, we serve our mission through four main initiatives: media literacy education, storyteller development, grant-making, and community-building.
