Make/Shift Today

Make/shift magazine is coming to campus today. Here’s the blurb:

Make/shift is a dynamic two-hour multimedia program, made to engage, inform, and challenge students around the intersections between interpersonal and structural violence, and how grassroots feminism is responding to both. The program features film with live narration, readings, and video works that movingly articulate a feminism that is as concerned with prisons and policing, queer politics, immigration raids, and colonialism as it is with traditional feminist issues like domestic violence.

Faced with not only gender-based oppression but also the structural violences of a collapsing capitalism, a climate-change crisis, and more, feminist activists and artists are resisting and creating alternatives to violent systems both intimate and global. And they’re doing it in many ways, spaces, and forms. “Makeshift Reclamation” shows what is happening on the ground and in the imaginations of social-justice-minded feminists.

The program centers around two projects: recLAmation, a film by Hilary Goldberg, and make/shift, an independent magazine featuring the art and activism of queer and antiracist feminists from around the world.
