The Foundry creates opportunities for creatives and arts organizations and fosters sustainable economic development. To this end, we work closely with local government agencies to ensure the inclusion of arts in plans, legislation and regulations. We serve on steering committees, task forces and advocate before representative boards. We also champion for capital investment in public facilities and projects.

Cultural Planning

We work with city planners on best practices for utilizing art and culture as a community revitalization tool; more importantly the potential contributions of art and culture to other social, economic, and environmental aspects of community life.

Public Art Curation + Project Management

As consultants, we facilitate work-flow; coordinating artists, fabricators, architects and designers, engineers, contractors and construction managers, from pre-artist selection to project close-out.

Cultural District Development

We work with cities to harness the power of their cultural resources to stimulate economic development and community revitalization.

Live Work/Work Live Programs

We work with cities, developers and individuals to create and maintain spaces for artists to live, work, exhibit, perform and conduct business.
