Welcome to a new model for art and design entrepreneurship.

Artscape’s Launchpad programs are the result of a decade of research recognizing that the struggle to sustain a career as an artist is intensifying. Programs are tailored specifically with creatives in mind, and offer project-based learning to help you build a thriving career in today’s competitive, fast-paced marketplace. You’ll gain the skills to grow a successful business, and access a community of like-minded creatives to support you along the way.


The Creative Business Design Workshop

A one-day session to guide you through the development of a viable business plan. This workshop is designed to meet the unique needs of artists and designers in the early stages of business development. Using the Creative Business Model Canvas approach – a lean and flexible business modeling tool– you’ll learn the core concepts of testing ideas, assessing feasibility and the process for implementation. Case studies, group discussion and break-out sessions make for a hands-on, practical learning experience. By starting smart, you’ll save time and money in the long run.

What you’ll get:

  • The Creative Business Canvas – a lean and flexible business planning tool, to help put your idea into action fast with minimal risk;
  • Tips to assess the overall viability of your project before spending time, money and energy developing something that may not be feasible;
  • Tools to identify and prioritize income-generating actions and goals.
  • Bonus! Registrants will receive 20% off their tuition for Launchpad’s Creative Entrepreneurship Program, should they wish to continue their learning (a savings of approx. $120).

What you’ll gain:

  • Discovery of new directions, efficiencies and strategies for growth;
  • A deep understanding of your customers, competitors and value proposition;
  • A new support network of like-minded creative entrepreneurs.
