Make Shift Boston is a cooperative coworking space of diverse working artists, activists, and creative people from across disciplines. We are also a gathering, exhibition, and community space offering affordable event rental. In all these capacities, we strive to support social justice activism, creative collaboration, solidarity, and the sustainability of values-driven businesses. We seek to create a space that is safe and liberating for all people. As artists and creatives committed to social justice, we live in radical, loving opposition and resistance to the forces that dehumanize us all.
