Welcome to Launchpad
Artscape Daniels Launchpad is more than Toronto’s newest and most exciting collaborative space. It is an idea. An intention to create a community where emerging and established artists, designers and creators, who believe they are capable of more, can succeed like never before. A place where you can forge a sustainable career through collaboration, coaching, mentorship and inspiration — all while furthering the profitability of your art.
Artscape Daniels Launchpad has grown out of ten years of consultation, research and collaboration involving artists, designers, colleges, universities and arts and culture-focused trade and service organizations.Learn More
WHAT WE DO
Artscape Daniels Launchpad is a first-of-its-kind centre for entrepreneurship providing facilities, programs, services and support that are tailor-made to help artists and designers thrive.
WHY WE DO IT
Artscape has been working with creative communities for decades, and we understand that now, it is harder than ever to make a living as an artist or designer. We designed Artscape Daniels Launchpad to bring together everything artists and designers need to thrive under one roof.
Our supporters know creativity is valuable and they want to support Launchpad to empower artists and take the creative industries to a new and exciting place. They recognize creativity’s power to bring transformative ideas, collaborations, experiments and purpose to our communities. This project would not be possible without their outstanding contributions.
Artscape is assembling an extraordinary team of leaders with specialized expertise in entrepreneurship development, multiple creative disciplines and technology as well as broad knowledge of resources services and support available in Southern Ontario.Meet the Team
