Sparkplug is DCAC’s artists collective. Launched in 2007, Sparkplug is a two-year program that offers members a place to meet, helps to organize studio visits, provides opportunities to hone presentation skills, and make connections with arts professionals such as curators, collectors, and established artists. In addition, DCAC organizes two curated Sparkplug exhibitions: one each year.

Fabiola (or just Fa) is a Venezuelan Human Rights Lawyer turned Arts and Culture Strategist. A social justice activist since childhood, she became the youngest Amnesty International Regional Manager, installing the first chapter of the organization in her state of Carabobo at age 19.

Her political activism in Venezuela proved too dangerous, which forced her to seek Political Asylum in the United States, where she dedicates herself to finding justice through artistic and cultural expressions.
