We have held community meetings to gather input on considerations for the use of each program space at the Foundry, prioritized in order of technical complication. The first series of meetings focused on flexible performance space since it has the most complicated design/construction requirements. This was followed by discussions about the makerspace. We’re now seeking input on the design of the spaces that will be used specifically for non-performance-based arts in the Foundry.
Public Meeting about Arts in the Foundry
In this meeting we will review several concepts for how the space will be used (e.g., a mix of private studios and shared co-working spaces for artists). As time permits, and in future meetings, we will discuss arts programming including: the potential for artists-in-residence; ways to prioritize the use of space if the space is over-subscribed; and gathering new ideas about the community’s needs and wants regarding the arts.
