LAUNCHPAD | Where Ideas Take Off

Dream of publishing a mini-zine, launching a maker business, creating a YouTube channel, recording an album? High school and college students are invited to apply to launch their creative passion project. Accepted students will be given studio space in the newly renovated design lab and mentorship from a community expert.

Mentorship available Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:30 to 5 pm. Open Studio Monday through Friday, 8 am to 6 pm. 

Sound cool but don’t have an idea? Some of our awesome young entrepreneurs are looking for photographers and writers to help get their idea of the ground. For more information, email Katie Chastain at
