Why are we doing this?
We’ve been thinking for a while now about a Foundry book, about its form and content, who might want to read it and why, and would make it a ‘Foundry book’.  While we’ve written a lot about our work and the company’s mission over the years; much of that language was created concurrently with a particular project or period in the company’s history; and was primarily written to invite our funders, the press or audiences to engage with the work.  We want to step aside from those inscribed meanings and encounter the work anew, now, and apart from the exigencies of production.  So we’ve given ourselves this project:  to watch every show, dialogue and community program in chronological order until we’re done (in April); as a way to trace the evolution of the company, in particular the evolution of its inquiry as it arose both within and between our various projects.  And to let these encounters inform what a Foundry book will be.  Either way, it’s a kind of privilege to “come” to all these events as audience members and watch The Foundry unfold itself.  You are so warmly welcome to come share any part of this with us.
