Dear Good Gorilla Community,
We are officially announcing that the Good Gorilla co-working space will be permanently closing its doors on June 30th 2021.
It pains us to write this, as we have fought tirelessly to stay afloat for the past 14 months. With the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic and the unknowns in 2021, we are unable to sustain Good Gorilla financially through the end of this year. More importantly, we cannot sustain the physical and mental strain that the pandemic has placed on our team.
Good Gorilla has always been a labor of love and would not have been possible without each one of you that had stepped foot into this space.
Thank you for 5 wonderful years.
Some would say 6 years — as you may have been part of the earlier weekly creative talks. Our deepest gratitude goes out to the kindness and love we have received from so many of you. We need to also extend our appreciation and thank the 401 management team and community, who provided us with a forever welcoming environment to thrive in.
Not all is gloom, as we believe that community can survive and transform past a physical space! And so we hope to see new clusters forming independent of GG and led by new people in the future.
We look forward to connecting with you again and perhaps collaborating on creative projects together! The physical space might be gone, but the community is still strong and our slack will remain open!
Much love from the Good Gorilla team,
Gracia, Kassem, Hugh, and Gloria ❤️ 🦍
