WHAT IS THE LAUNCH CREATIVE CENTER?

The goal of the Launch Creative Center is to preserve and promote a culture of creativity through skateboarding. This facility will house a communal mini ramp, a skateboard museum complete with over sixty years of skateboarding history, a library of art books, skate mags, and videos, and a workshop space for teaching ramp building, custom deck design,  grip tape art, etc., and for hosting guest artists and speakers from the art and skateboarding industry. 

WHY IS THE LAUNCH CREATIVE CENTER SO IMPORTANT? 

1. THE LAUNCH CREATIVE CENTER WILL BE THE FIRST KNOWN FACILITY OF ITS KIND.                                                                                                 Skateboarding has exploded in popularity over the past 10 years. Everyone seems to want a piece of this seemingly lucrative industry.  The Launch Creative Center is not trying to make money off of skateboarding.  Quite the opposite, actually. We want to create an environment that fosters a culture of creativity and self expression through skateboarding. We believe skateboard history and culture should be preserved and passed on to a new generation of rippers.  

2. BECAUSE PROMOTING CREATIVITY AND SELF-EXPRESSION IS IMPORTANT. Skateboarding attracts individuals who appreciate the creativity and self-expression associated with the art form.  It is our mission to provide a physical space for the sole purpose of promoting art, creativity, and self-expression through skateboarding. 

HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT US?                                                                        Even with great determination, we still need your help to get this idea off the ground.  We believe that your generous donation will help this facility promote skateboarding as the creative outlet we find so important.  

Your funding will help cover facility rental costs, fixtures, and supplies necessary to build a miniramp within the facility.
