CULTURE/SHIFT 2018 will take place November 1-3 in Albuquerque, New Mexico! 


CULTURE/SHIFT is a national convening of artists, organizers, and allies dedicated to inciting creativity and social imagination to shape a culture of empathy, equity, and belonging. Join us Nov. 1-3 in Albuquerque, New Mexico for 2.5 days of participatory workshops, performances, plenaries, interactive art-making and more!

This intergenerational, intercultural gathering will bring together people from across the country for skill-building, relationship-building, and engaged learning, deepening a movement for cultural democracy. Programming will touch on timely and resonant regional and national themes: immigration, indigenous cultural rights, climate justice, public memory, ethics of community-based arts, community development/displacement, and more. Together, we'll create and amplify stories and strategies for cultural healing, resilience, and resistance, building relationships and capacity to nourish culture shift.

We’re excited to be partnering with the City of Albuquerque’s Cultural Services Department and many local and regional organizations who work at the intersection of art, community development, and social justice.

Stay tuned for more details about speakers, accommodations, special events, and registration coming soon. The 2016 convening filled almost immediately, so be sure to watch your inbox to learn when registration opens later this summer.

We hope to see you in New Mexico!
