SHIFT Residency / EFA Project Space

Since its inception in 2010, SHIFT residency has been providing peer support, mentoring, and studio space for artists who work in arts organizations to boost their personal creative practices. The SHIFT residency honors these artists’ commitment to the arts community with a supportive environment to advance their creative practices by providing a shared studio space, professional development opportunities, and a culminating exhibition at EFA Project space. SHIFT hosts artists working in a range of media, from sound and installation to painting, performance, and social practice. In addition to its role as a support network, SHIFT promotes advocacy for arts workers and seeks to increase equity and representation within the field.
