Artscape is a not-for-profit organization that
makes space for creativity and transforms communities.
Artscape Launchpad is a new model of creative space: part incubator, part co-working facility and part entrepreneurship centre. Scheduled to open in 2018 as part of the Daniels Waterfront - City of the Arts complex, it has been designed by Artscape to provide art and design professionals with the tools, resources, training and mentorship to build successful careers rooted in sustainable businesses. Artscape Launchpad members will gain access to a 30,000 square-foot, multi-disciplinary co-working environment full of equipment and technology, as well as a whole suite of programs and services to help them grow their incomes and launch new businesses.
Artscape Launchpad has grown out of nearly a decade of collaboration and research with colleges, universities and trade organizations. We've focused on how we can help individuals and small businesses in the art and design communities thrive. The combination of programs, services and facilities that Launchpad will bring together is unprecedented. It will be a game-changer for artists and designers, a major boost for Ontario's $23 billion creative economy and a jolt of urban acupuncture that will help bring Toronto's waterfront to life.
