The Launchpad & Dance Initiative

Aside from being the home of Carbondale Art’s Office, R2 Gallery and Artique we also share the building with our partner, Dance Initiative, who sponsors the Open Studio and Studio C for movement-based and performing arts. The Open Studio and Studio C are professional grade performing arts studios available for public use. Dance Initiative and Carbondale Arts work closely to provide affordable teaching, working, and performing space for a variety of artists.

Coming in the summer of 2015, look out for the Betty Jane Schuss Memorial Gardens featuring a community garden and “edible forest”, small ampitheatre, gathering spaces and sculpture garden.
