The Foundry Equation: Art + Community= Renewal
Cambridge, MA (June 13, 2013) - On Saturday, June 22nd Cambridge's historic Foundry building (101 Rogers Street) will host "The Foundry Equation," an art initiative and open house. Presented by local art advocates FLUX. Boston, Opus Affair, Voltage Coffee & Art, and Yes.Oui.Si., this unique event will feature both contemporary and children's art, live music and improv performances while showcasing the potential of a neighborhood landmark.

"Art plus community equals renewal­ that's The Foundry Equation. In this building lays an opportunity to unite Cambridge, Kendall Square and East Cambridge, industrial and residential, kids and adults, art and music, past and future... " said Ilan Levy, East Cambridge resident, host of Cambridge Community Television's "The Foundry," and one of the event's organizers.

In addition to residents, area businesses are excited about the possibility of a vibrant community arts space, "There's been interest in using this space to support local artists for some time. This event is a one­ day solution to the Foundry Equation," said Lucy Valena, proprietress of Voltage Coffee and Art. "It's a chance to show all the cool stuff that could be happening in this neighborhood. People could be making really great art, regularly, in Kendall Square." Anna Schindelar, Art Director at Voltage Coffee and Art as well as curator of the event, added: "This is our vision, our take: an art initiative with the hope of engaging the community, residents, and kids in a dialogue about what they
want to see happen to this space. We're just providing an option, a suggestion to the Foundry Equation."

Enthusiasm among community partners underscores the strength of this option: "Having access to such a large arts space in the city opens up a world of possibilities. It would create an environment that promotes collaboration, skill­sharing, and the exchange of ideas. The Foundry would be an invaluable resource for the Cambridge community," said Liz Devlin, independent curator and founder of FLUX. Boston.

The Foundry Equation is free and open to residents, arts enthusiasts, and the community at large from 11 AM­ 3 PM on Saturday, June 22nd. For updates, information, and a full list of collaborators please visit and join the conversation on Twitter with hashtag #thefoundryequation.

The Somerville Arts Council presents a Dancing in the Streets production with
Allegro Dance Collaborative

Performance Date and Time:
Sunday, June 16, 8:30 PM
Rain Date: June 17th

CVS/Magoun Plaza
532 Medford St.
Somerville, MA
"En Route" explores the parallels between the archetypal journey west, the constant migration and movement toward an end goal, toward gold, toward the coast, and the experience of building your life after graduating from college. Each of the dancers in this piece contributed their own stories of hardship, celebration, and determination to continue moving, even though sometimes it feels as though we are not making any ground. Inspiration was drawn from southwestern culture, folk and country music, as well as from the roots of our individual dance careers, informing much of our choreography and theatrical choices. After "En Route," Allegro Dance Collective will perform selected pieces from their repertoire.
Allegro Dance Collaborative was formed in Fall 2011 by six Brandeis University alumni living and working in the Boston area. Originally conceived as an outlet to enable each of us to dance on the weekends, Allegro Dance Collective has grown into an opportunity to create dance projects to supplement our professional work in other fields. Since its inception, Allegro Dance Collective has choreographed two original productions, including La Bella Pietra, performed at the Rose Art Museum during the 2012 Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts (a project made possible by a generous grant from the Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts), as well as "En Route," being performed this summer at SomDance (a performance made possible by the City of Somerville and Boston Dance Alliance).
Allegro Dance Collaborative dancers include: Courtney Choate, Julie Judson, Anna Kharaz, Sari Ladin, Beth Moguel, Carina Platner, Ariella Silverstein-Tapp, and Greg Storella.

Cambridge Arts Council
Project Dates: July 1- August 9
Applicant Deadline: Noon, Monday, June 17, 2013

Open-ended play is essential to human development throughout life.

Play can be enjoyed in a moment or for hours. It can be purely visual, small in scale, or engage our whole bodies.

Job Description:

Project Coordinator will work directly with the students of the PAYC under the supervision of the CAC’s Public Art Administrator. Coordinator must be available for all hours: July 1- August 9, Monday through Friday, 9am to 1pm (with some work required outside those hours).
