Make.Shift will open our new space: a home for all-ages arts and music, band practice space, a DIY resource library and more.
Make.Shift is transforming an historic auto body shop into an all-ages arts and music hub, which will host all-ages concerts, affordable band practice space, a local art gallery, resource library and more. We're partnering with WHAAM (Whatcom All-Ages Arts and Music) to make it happen!
We're a 501c3 nonprofit organization that supports independent musicians through environmentally friendly programs. All donations are tax-deductible!
$5,000 of our fundraising goal is earmarked for the renovation of our new space. Your tax-deductible contribution will also help maintain two current projects:
*The Power Wheel bicycle generators, which are used to power live music in the pacific northwest, and to raise community awareness of sustainable energy alternatives.
* The Magic Van, a biodiesel SWAT van we use to transport independent musicians on concert tours throughout the pacific northwest. This program helps make touring more affordable for musicians by reducing the cost of gas. By using biodiesel, we also help lighten the environmental impact of touring.
Thank you for helping us support independent music in the Pacific Northwest!
