Creative Community
The Foundry is small business incubator and community education space that is working to create an environment of professional collaboration and skill sharing. We are seeking applicants that are interested in participating by renting a space and also engaging with our residents and the greater community. We greatly encourage sharing of information, ideas, skills and request that a tenant offer a minimum one skill-share/workshop per year.

(i.e. held workshops, painted a mural, etc.)

Thank you for all your answers!
