During a time in which racial and social justice movements are reaching a critical point, the need for change and commitment to equity is more obvious and important than ever before.
The Crucible was able to resume operations again in February in a limited capacity and we hope to be fully operational in all 19 art departments by the end of this year. As many of our members, students, faculty, and staff return to in-person classes once again, it is important to recommit to our values. In the process of reopening and rebuilding our programs and offerings, we must foster a culture we can all be proud of.
With feedback from our staff, faculty, and the broader community, The Crucible team has agreed on a number of goals for the year that will help ensure our space is an equitable and welcoming place that makes the transformative joy of the industrial arts accessible to all.
We are excited to share them with you and will continue to make regular public updates about our progress throughout the year. We appreciate everyone’s support in making 2021 the best year it can be!
