WHO WE ARE

Make/Shift is a community that fosters makers in the process of poiesis: the shift from muse to making.  

 

MORE ABOUT MAKE/SHIFT

Recently founded in 2018 by Oscar Klausner and Irene Lazaridis,
Make/Shift is a playground for makers. It is a community that helps makers foster their musings  and ideas into fully-realized creations. We believe in giving space to the creative process, to allow makers to experiment, and to shift their perspective from what making is to what it can be. Originally, Make/Shift began in 2016 with Working Titles, a monthly gathering of makers to share and develop work. In the last year, Make/Shift has expanded to include Spotlight Series, a spotlight event that features the developing work of a Working Titles member, Summer Jam Sessions, a monthly summer rooftop art party, and Shop Productions, which inaugurated with As We Let Go and provides makers with the next step in their creative process—the opportunity to put their work up in a workshop setting.  Featured work includes As We Let Go by Claudia Rivera, The Irish Wake by Kelly Erickson, Take Care by Austin Riley, Voyagers devised by Irene Lazaridis, original music by Cameron Noble, and the all-female art event, SHE Creates curated by Lizzy Jarrett.
