What is the Foundry?
The Foundry is what we call our new makerspace. Makerspaces are the ultimate creative space. Like a traditional library in the sense that they provide resources for learning and creativity, the Makerspace also provides the tools and human capital for creative production, as well as knowledge acquisition. In addition to tools, makerspaces provide community residents with the shared training and resources to become active and empowered creators of their futures instead of passive consumers.
Learn more about the Foundry, and our new Sound Studio, in our Grand Opening video on the Pasco County Government channel!
