SpaceShift is a creative hub for collaboration and experimentation. We are a collective of artists, cultural workers, 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.
