About Summit

Launchpad SUMMIT is returning this year for a virtual creative career conference. With four days of industry insights, professional growth and connections to potential future work opportunities, SUMMIT 2020 was programmed to help the artists, designers and creatives most impacted by COVID-19.


Artscape Daniels Launchpad is a first-of-its-kind creative entrepreneurship hub designed to help emerging and established artists, designers and creators from all disciplines grow thriving careers. This unique facility on Toronto’s waterfront brings together 30,000+ sq. ft. of state-of-the-art, multidisciplinary creative and technical studios; co-working space, meeting and event facilities; and specialized creative entrepreneurship programs, workshops and events--all designed to support and inspire creative experimentation, learning and collaboration. Launchpad offers members the chance to be part of a vibrant, diverse community of creators as well as to engage in mentorship, learning programs and way finding to plug into resources and business opportunities.Owned and operated by Artscape, the model for Launchpad was developed to help bridge the gap that exists between the tremendous cultural and economic value artists’ ideas contribute to society and what creative people earn for their work. Artscape is named in recognition of the outstanding financial support of The Daniels Corporation, the John and Myrna Daniels Foundation and WJ Properties.
