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

Transfiguring your isolated hyper-reality into a communal surreality! Participants will call in a vocal description of an Instagram feed to a google voicemail, receive a new translation of their perception, then create a hand-drawn "feed" from those words. The program will conclude with an outing to post the results around the neighborhood.

Working with poetic and music-making devices, we're going to create some music beats, play out African drum beats and write poetry/lyrics to go with it. The songs and spoken word pieces that come from this will hopefully be inspired by wonder and what makes people feel adventurous,imagine, etc. There will be a focus on tying the drumbeat, heartbeat, and poetry together.

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!
