We’ve started a big research project in our little office.
We’re screening every Foundry production, dialogue, and community program in chronological order until we’re done. We started on October 18th with The Foundry’s first production, W. David Hancock’s Convention of Cartography, and we suddenly realized something was missing. You.

Come join us for any of these. Office hours are now open for the rest of the process.

Mondays @ 6:30 Fridays @ 4:30
Reservations are (spatially) necessary; First come first served.

@ The Foundry Office
140-142 Second Ave. Ste 405 (9th St. & 2nd Ave; next door to Veselka Restaurant)
Note: this is a 3rd Fl walk-up; there is no elevator

All Productions will be screened in full; Dialogues and Community Programs will be excerpted

Monday, October 31st : A Conversation on Hope 1998 (part 1 of 2) [Foundry Dialogues]
A Conversation on Hope; An Improvisational Performance of Ideas with 300 artists, activists and public thinkers
"I am hopeful not out of mere stubbornness but out of an existential concrete imperative… We need critical hope the way a fish needs unpolluted water.” –Paulo Freire

The Foundry Theatre and Cornel West welcome you all to A Conversation on Hope. This event has brought together 300 artists and public thinkers, many for the first time, to improvise a performance of ideas; to engage in a series of creative conversations and encounters exploring notions of hope and its impact on the actions we do and do not take in the politics of our everyday lives. This event is itself a process ... an extemporaneous journey; and the first of many unique events designed to directly explore and challenge the relationship between artists and the larger society. Next stop ... to be continued.

We are looking through this 2-day event across two sessions - this one and again on November 14th.

This one will focus on the opening gathering FOOD FOR THOUGHT at which 300 people sat down for a meal of 4 courses and 4 questions provoked by participants guests Cornel West, Barbara Ehrenreich, Jonathan Kozol, Robbie McCauley and Vernon Reid.
