David BanksInvolved Since: June 2021
Crucible Staff Since: September 2021
David was drawn to this position as someone with both nonprofit experience and as a former small business owner. He is a passionate supporter of local artists and is especially excited about the program’s ability to create community, provide dedicated studio space, offer skill-building opportunities, and access capital through our SFMade partnership. “There is often a lack of resources for BIPOC makers who might not have access to facilities like The Crucible. I was interested in working to bridge that gap. OFB creates a safe and welcoming space to learn new skills and scale their businesses," David says.
