Introducing ArtHub – Creative Placemaking in Maine

ArtHub is a multi-year public-private collaboration between Launchpad, partner organizations, private foundations, local, state and regional agencies, and local financial supporters, working to promote arts and culture as a core sector of community planning and development in Maine with the goal of strengthening the social, physical, and economic well-being of our state. Partner organizations and collaborators work with Launchpad to identify projects that benefit their individual communities.

The core concept of creative placemaking is dependant on projects in which art plays an intentional and interactive role in place-based community planning and development. This brings artists, arts organizations, and artistic activity into the mix of placemaking strategies utilized by public planners and private developers.

We Believe You Create the Community You Want to Live In, One Creative Project at a Time.
