Sampad: leaping into the future with launchPAD for artist development

After the success of our 25th anniversary gala, Sampad is moving forward with a new and exciting opportunity! They are unveiling a new artist development programme called launchPAD.

launchPAD is a programme for emerging artists who want to involve digital technology in their creative practice. Having supported arts and artists for the past 25 years and having been involved in innovative digital projects such as SEPP: Digital, Sampad is well placed to run this exciting new programme.

launchPAD will provide artists with a safe space to explore how new technologies can interact with and impact on their own creative ideas, showcasing the type of innovation that is now possible!

Sound like something you’d like to be involved in? We are currently crowdfunding part of the overall fund over on Indiegogo so check out the campaign page and video and donate! The more you donate the more artists we can support! (and the better your rewards will be too!)

Sampad in Sanskrit means ‘treasure or wealth’, and we plan on sharing the wealth of knowledge that we have in order to protect and nurture the treasure that is art and artists.

Donations will go towards launchPAD, helping us to support talented emerging artists. We need your support so we can continue nurturing talented artists!
