As concerns about COVID-19 grow, Artscape Daniels Launchpad’s priority is the health and safety of our employees, community members and the public.

In light of the announcement from Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health on Friday recommending the immediate suspension of all large events/public gatherings of over 250 people due to COVID-19 with further announcements today, Artscape Daniels Launchpad is taking immediate measures to aid in controlling and containing the spread of the virus.

As of today, Monday, March 16, Artscape has taken the following actions:

  • Artscape Daniels Launchpad will be closed to the public and all public events and programs cancelled from end of day March 16 to April 6, 2020.
  • Launchpad’s coworking spaces will remain open for its members with reduced hours from 10am-5pm, Monday to Friday, and closed on the weekends.
  • The Digital Media Lab and Creative Studios and all programming in these spaces will be closed as of March 16 to April 6.

In this rapidly evolving situation, we’re closely following local government and World Health Organization (WHO) advisories and will provide updates as we receive new information. Please see our FAQ resource page for more information.

Continue following us on our social channels for updates as this situation evolves. Stay safe and try to maintain a sense of community by looking out for each other at this challenging time.
