Mission Statement
The Socially Engaged Craft Collective (SECC)  is an expanding network of artists who create a wide range of socially engaged art projects that are rooted in the history of craft objects and materials. The SECC aims to promote artists and to expose other artists, educators, and those who are interested, to the wide spectrum of socially engaged craft. In addition to highlighting artists and their artwork, the SECC is an open resource of knowledge, news, and professional opportunities within the field.

The SECC was cofounded in 2014 by nicole gugliotti, Jeni Hansen Gard, Forrest Sincoff Gard, and Cheyenne Chapman Rudolph.
