Launchpad focuses on Creative Placemaking and works to grow the Creative Economy in Maine.
We support all sorts of creatives, artists, arts organizations and creative start ups by helping them develop, grow and gain visibility. Our organizational programs and projects work to achieve those goals.
The organization was founded in 2014. Since our inception we have successfully introduced several projects including the Central Gallery mixed-use arts space in Bangor, Maine, All Roads Music Festival in Belfast, Maine, the Launch207 program and our most recent collaboration; the Bangor Arts Exchange.
Over its first two years of existence, Launchpad has presented the work of hundreds of music artists, filmmakers and traditional and experimental artists to a diverse range of thousands of audience members.
