THE DARLING FOUNDRY LAUNCHES A HISTORIC FUNDRAISING
FROM TENANT TO OWNER
JULY 10 – SEPTEMBER 4
The conservation of cultural patrimony is an essential aspect of revitalizing neighbourhoods and preserving the collective memory. As large housing and urban development projects are on the rise in the neighbourhood, the situation has become critical for the Darling Foundry.
We have a responsibility to protect a heritage building that has withstood the test of time and made an impact on our current age. We also have a responsibility to support artistic development that is community- and future-oriented.
Quartier Éphémère has submitted an offer to purchase the Darling Foundry building from the City of Montreal, which has been accepted. Thanks to the financial support of the Ministère de l'Économie et de l'Innovation for a total of $125,000, this project has become possible.
THE DARLING FOUNDRY NEEDS YOU
For this project to become a reality, Quartier Éphémère needs to raise $70,000 before September 2019, after which time the Ministry’s support will expire.
For this reason, we are launching a historic campaign on the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo, in order to seek your help and raise the missing funds before the deadline.
Every dollar counts, and we are counting on you!
