About Launchpad
Launchpad is Western Arts Alliance 's new start-up program for emerging artists and early career agents or managers. Launchpad participants receive a three-year bundle of technical assistance, professional development, mentoring, promotional benefits, and membership. Our goal for Launchpad is to make it possible for artists to become visible to, and to connect with, the managers and presenters who will book them.
