Opening in November, Artscape Daniels Launchpad is now booking its event space located within the facility’s new 30,000-sq.-ft. creative entrepreneurship centre. Overlooking the lake and Sugar Beach’s pretty pink umbrellas from its perch on the 4th floor of the new Daniels Waterfront — City of the Arts, Launchpad is the latest creative/community project from Artscape, a not-for-profit urban development organization. The venue shares the floor with a mix of production studios and co-working spaces for the centre’s members, creative entrepreneurs and artists, from a computer lab and sound recording studio to fine metals/jewelry and woodworking workrooms.
With water-view floor-to-ceiling windows, the 4,800-sq.-ft. event venue is multi-functional and versatile with retractable walls that can divide the space into three rooms of varying sizes. Full capacity accommodates up to 350 guests with a built-in bar and adjacent prep kitchen. On-site AV equipment includes state-of-the-art projection, audio and lighting. The building also has underground parking for guests. Look into the potential of future educational, teambuilding and activity collaborations with members of the centre’s creative hub.
