the Foundry Advisory Committee (FAC)
In early September the City Manager announced two new appointments to the Foundry Advisory Committee to fill seats vacated by ‘Folakemi Alalade and Deborah Ruhe. The new appointments are Carole Sousa and Joyce Yoke-kar Chen. Both bring strong enthusiasm for the Foundry project, an understanding of the interests and needs of Cambridge families, experience engaging people in community building activities, and a desire to see the Foundry help advance racial and economic equity as it provides arts, technology and workforce education programs.
The Foundry Advisory Committee is a group of Cambridge residents, who play an advisory role to the City of Cambridge and the Cambridge Redevelopment Authority, to ensure that the Foundry's redevelopment and ongoing operation remains consistent with the Vision and Objectives established in the Demonstration Plan.
Members of the Foundry Advisory Committee represent a range of backgrounds and perspectives including arts, theater, science, nonprofit operation, real estate development, and law. They also bring relevant skills and experience that are important at this stage in the redevelopment of the building. The City Manager has appointed the following members:
