Review for The Crucible, Oakland, CA, USA
The Crucible is an amazing organization that provides facilities, education and a community for arts involving fire. The arts supported range from welding and blacksmithing to glass blowing and jewelry making - activities few of us can do at home. More importantly, the Crucible serves the West Oakland community in which it is located. Despite some recent gentrification, West Oakland is a neighborhood that struggles with many social ills including high rates of poverty and crime. The Crucible provides West Oakland youth with opportunities to master new skills and develop a sense of pride by building custom bicycles and participating in other youth programs. It periodically offers free bike repair, and lets West Oakland residents attend its amazing Fire Arts Festival free of charge.
