Our Programs

Our programming is centered around community, education, technology, and providing unique creative opportunities for up-and-coming and established artists.

Open Call

We invite artists from around the community to submit their work and present it in our space

Featured Artist Program

Featured Artists will curate a month of performances, workshops, and interviews with fellow musicians. They will also record educational content for TuneBend, a new format for music education created by Shapeshifter Lab Productions.

Education Program

ShapeShifter Plus is proud to collaborate with organizations, like the Afro Latin Jazz Alliance, on their youth music education programs. In 2023, our Young Adults Program will include workshops, masterclasses, talks with well-known musicians, and performances for up-and-coming musicians dedicated to developing their craft.

Weekly Open Jam

Every week, a new artist will host a jam session that will be free and open to the public. 

Art Exhibition Collaborations

ShapeShifter Plus also loves to collaborate with visual artists. We have ample wall canvases to exhibit artwork to the public on the ground and 2nd floors. Located in a lively neighborhood, we want to bring the visual arts element to our community as it is an integral part of creativity, education, and collaboration.
