Artscape Launchpad Needs Your Help!

Help shape Artscape Launchpad, a new creative sector entrepreneurship training and production centre.

Over the past several months NetGain and Artscape have interviewed individual artists and met with dozens of groups and organizations about Launchpad with the intent of learning how to make a dynamic centre like this successful for the creative and cultural sector.  Now we want to hear directly from a wider group of creative practitioners about the model we’re developing.

Artscape Launchpad will include access to:

  • a range of studio and work space;
  • equipment and materials that are often too expensive or challenging to operate independently;
  • programming (e.g. business and artistic workshops, master classes, industry-specific professional development), and;
  • on-site services and amenities.

Launchpad is envisioned as a downtown Toronto space that brings together a variety of creative disciplines, from design to new media to film to visual and performing arts, and more.  These creative practitioners will mix with corporate partners and industry and trade organizations in an environment that encourages collaboration, innovation, networking, and commercial success.

We need input from practitioners like you to make sure Launchpad offers what you need to help you further develop your career. Please take about 10-15 minutes to complete a questionnaire at:

The survey will be open until this Wednesday February 15th.
