DIVERSITY STATEMENT

All Welcome Here

The Maine Crafts Association believes that diversity and inclusion are essential to fulfilling its vision of building and supporting our community of craft artists.

We want to inspire and nurture the human spirit, and we value the perspectives and contributions of all people. We want the MCA experience to include varied ideas, world views, and personal characteristics. MCA is committed to being a community that welcomes and respects everyone regardless of age, ability, ethnicity, race, religion, philosophical or political beliefs, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, nationality, geographic origin, and socioeconomic status. We are committed to providing an environment free of discrimination.
