A HUGE thank you to the over 500(!) people who came out last weekend and to the many participants who gave their time, love and energy towards making The Foundry Equation an incredible experience.

The positivity was infectious. It was great to see so many artists, families, city representatives and members of the community mixing, mingling, and rallying around a cause. That is what it’s all about.

The Foundry Equation‘s story doesn’t end here–this is only the beginning. And I’m confident that no matter what the future holds for the building, that we made a statement last Saturday about how meaningful a space like this could be to the community.

Moving forward, I hope we can raise this same sort of awareness for other spaces in and around the city that are vacant and brimming with a similar potential.

Basically, let’s do this again soon, OK?

Thank you to all, and to all a goodnight. ♥
