Why your donation matters
The Forest is a unique space. We have existed for a decade on the sheer enthusiasm and effort of thousands of generous and committed volunteers. People commit to Forest because they believe in the importance of a space that offers an alternative to bland, identikit coffee franchises and cookie-cutter art galleries that only expose the work of the already successful. These exist in abundance. For over a decade we have stood apart as an open, free, artistic, social space.
Due to the bankruptcy of our landlords, the building that the Forest currently occupies was put up for sale in October 2010, and our lease terminated as of August 31st 2011. We will put all the funds raised towards establishing a new, even better home for Forest.
