Incubate Creativity at Your Library
In this webinar, Library as Incubator Project shares program and project ideas, resources and case studies to turn your library into a creativity incubator.
This event has passed.
The Library as Incubator Project (LAIP) promotes the library as a place to connect and create. LAIP has networked with hundreds of libraries who are working with their communities to incubate and inspire creative projects. They have talked with scores of artists, writers, makers, performers, and other creatives about how they use their libraries and how their libraries can serve them even better. In this webinar, LAIP shares program and project ideas, resources and case studies to turn your library into a creativity incubator. Take the workable, scalable programming and resource framework from LAIP and become a hub for supporting creatives of all types and skill levels in your community.
Presented by: Laura Damon-Moore, Co-founder and Editor, Library as Incubator Project, and Community Engagement Librarian, Madison Public Library
