Shamiana
a place to grow, a space to gather

SpaceShift is a creative hub for collaboration and experimentation. We are an amorphous collective of artists, creatives and change-makers rethinking the ways in which we work, live and create.

SpaceShift  was launched because we believe existing systems, structures and spaces need to be overhauled and reimagined.

We embrace radically transparent processes and open-source collaboration. Our practice centers communities and connects people, ideas and resources in all things that we conceptualize, design and create.
