Artscape Daniels Launchpad arts entrepreneur programs and workshops have been educating artists, designers and creators across Southern Ontario since 2014, and are now proudly offered at Launchpad.
Our learning programs are tailored to help creative entrepreneurs generate more income, build a thriving arts business and protect their intellectual property, attract investment, achieve artistic goals, grow personally and professionally, enhance their communications, solve business problems unique to the creative sector, and much more.
Our Philosophy and Objectives
Our programs are built on the idea that success comes by working and collaborating with others. The better able entrepreneurs are to work across boundaries, the more opportunities for cultural, community and commercial impact there are.
Our programs are the result of ten years of research and development and have benefitted from the input and involvement of over 100 partners.
Our participants reflect the cultural and disciplinary diversity of the creative sector. Our community is exploring new business models at the intersection of art, community, technology, and design.
Our arts entrepreneur programs are multi-day interdisciplinary education classes on what it takes to be a creative entrepreneur. This is not your typical entrepreneurship program. Each of our arts programs are designed to help solve the problems that creatives face when building more sustainable arts businesses.
Our workshops range from two hour to full-day sessions focused on a single discipline that provide new approaches and hands-on opportunities to try new things. Each of our workshops are designed to maximize the expertise in the room and the experience including our participants from across the creative sector.
