A fun, off-script program created for and by Denver's unique creative community. Join us for these regular happenings that activate the space and provide informal opportunities to engage with RedLine. These experiences will take place on the first and third Mondays of the month, in the evening starting at 6:00pm and ending no later than 8:30pm.
We are currently seeking proposals for the 2018 Season of Make/Shift Monday

Poem Boxes and Assemblage
Join us and our friends from Lighthouse Writers Workshop as we create poem boxes using text from Claudia Rankine's Citizen: An American Lyric as inspiration. Poem boxes are sculptural interpretations of text, like a literary diorama; they are whatever you want them to be. Supplies will be provided, including found objects, though participants are encouraged to bring small items that inspire you, as well as a box you want to use (for example: an old shoebox). At the end we'll discuss how Rankine's text affected us, and how we transformed words and objects into art. Feel free to BYOB ("B" stands for beer and/or box!)
Hosted By: Jesica Carson Davis - poet/artist
What is Make/Shift Monday?
Make/Shift Monday is a program that encourages participants to engage with RedLine in a unique and inspiring way. Make/Shift, as the name implies, is very open-ended and each bi-weekly happening is crafted with the creative spirit in mind. The nature of programming is always thoughtful, sometimes a little wacky, and somewhat improvisatory.
Make/Shift is an opportunity for local creatives and extended members of the RedLine community to share practical skills, intellectual interests, or secret superpowers with a receptive group of peers and arts enthusiasts.
There is an endless variety of “types” of things that could go on during a Make/Shift Monday. Past programs have included participatory concerts that involve music, poetry, improvisation, and dance where the distinctions between composer, performer, and audience member are dissolved; collaborative art activities and creative testimonials; one-of-a-kind art workshops; and many more!
