Cruces Creatives Temporarily Closing

Thank you so much for being a part of Cruces Creatives and our wider Cruces community. 

To keep the safety of our community a first-most priority, and to follow Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham safety order, Cruces Creatives has decided to temporarily close. We will be monitoring the situation and tentatively reopening April 11th, 2020. 

If you need special access to the facility (for example, to retrieve project materials), please send an email to support@crucescreatives.org or post a message on Slack. We will accommodate such requests as needed.

Please heed the advice of national and local health authorities and be safe. 

Thank you again for being a part of our Cruces Creatives community.

Very best,

Lea Wise-Surguy, Executive Director

The Cruces Creatives Board
