Artscape Daniels Launchpad programs and workshops have been operating since 2014, and are currently being offered in locations across Southern Ontario.

Our programs are tailor-made to help artists and designers generate more income, build a business, protect their intellectual property, attract investment, achieve artistic goals, grow personally and professionally, enhance their communications 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.

What our programs offer you

Launchpad programs support artists and creators to approach learning, collaboration and entrepreneurship with generosity. Rather than working within traditional entrepreneurship models rooted in individual success and competition, Launchpad unlocks what is possible when creative people work together.

Signature Programs

Launchpad’s Signature Programs ask creators to confront hard questions about the business side of their creative practice, identify allies that will move things forward, and practice new ways of organizing to get things done in a fast-moving and constantly-changing sector.
