Launchpad believes the Creative Economy is a key piece of successful community development. Sectors like the Performing or Visual Arts, Cultural Design, and Media help communities retain workforce talent, and attract people and businesses to locate there.

Creative economy projects capitalize on the power of art to inspire and delight, and focus on creative business growth as strategies to help bring economic and community development.

If you are interested in developing a Launchpad project in your community we want to hear from you!

The Bangor Arts Exchange project has become a hub for the arts community, allowed the Bangor Symphony Orchestra to return to its birthplace and has breathed life into the historic Nichols Block in Downtown Bangor.
