Megan Sparks

Houston, TX

Megan Sparks is an interdisciplinary social practice artist, poet, and art writer. She is the founder and facilitator of The Resistance Healing Clinic (RHC), a series of public programs examining self and collective care survival tactics for marginalized and oppressed communities through the lens of economics, history, and critical theory. RHC’s inaugural program, PROGNOSIS: Mitigating Resistance Burnout, was held at Alabama Song in 2017. RHC is a long- term project designed to create a publication, resource library and toolkit so socially engaged artists, activists and people from any walk of life can learn, grow, change and incorporate an anti-capitalist ethos into their life, work, and community.

Through her experimental poetry, she explores her own journey of healing, self-care, and discovery of self-compassion. Her art critiques and writing have been featured on Arts and Culture Texas and Not That But This. She has also been a participant in performances held at Aurora Picture Show, Project Row Houses, and Art League Houston. She is a former art administrator, who worked at the Houston Center Photography and interned at Aurora Picture Show. She has also worked in development and philantrophy.
