Spark Labs / Micro-Projects
Launchpad is a project-driven organization. Our projects are designed to grow the Creative Economy and focus on Creative Placemaking, where public, private, not-for-profit, and community sectors partner to strategically shape the physical and social character of a neighborhood, town, tribe, city, or region around arts and cultural activities.
We pursue two types of projects: Macro-Projects, which tend to be larger in scope, looking to be sustained over a long period of time, or Micro-Projects, which often have specific goals or a finite project timeline.
Launchpad’s Spark Labs program is intended to further engage local Creatives and Creative Organizations by developing small yet scalable projects that maximize community impact. We also work to provide program participants resources in Project or Event Management, provide them an opportunity to better understand and contribute to our core mission, learn the value and potential impact of scalability, better understand the importance of place and its impact on community development, and for them to further connect with their own communities.
