Learning and Professional Development
Our learning and professional development programs support artists building businesses based on their creative talents, and creative placemakers making space for creativity in their communities.
For artists building creative businesses, Artscape offers programs and workshops through its Artscape Launchpad initiative. Our programs are affordable, small, and designed to fit in with busy lifestyles. Take a deep dive with our Creative Entrepreneurship Program, or start with shorter programs like our Creative Business Design Workshop or Ignite Series.
These programs are connected to our creative entrepreneurship hub in development, Artscape Daniels Launchpad. Once this incredible facility is open in late 2018, our full slate of programs will also include networking and mentorship opportunities for artist members working on launching and sustaining businesses based on their creative talents.
Launchpad programming is supported by FedDev Ontario, the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Ontario Media Development Corporation, the City of Toronto through Start Up Here Toronto, the Metcalf Foundation and the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation.
You can learn about creative placemaking through Artscape and benefit from programs that deliver practical knowledge based on our 30+ years in developing and managing spaces for creativity. Explore our Artscape DIY website at your own pace, or participate in Artscape-led learning programs offered throughout the year. Groups interested in a custom program are invited to inquire about our Mentorship & Coaching program and bespoke consulting.
