ShapeShifter Lab is ShapeShifting!
ShapeShifter Lab is in a transition, initiated by the pandemic. We’ve learned so much during this critical time in our collective history, and we feel these last 10 years, running our music venue and all the various operations we’ve spun together, have laid the groundwork for what we will accomplish in the future.
So, we’re changing our location. We’ll miss 18 Whitwell Place. It’s been a beautiful space to gather, celebrate, learn, innovate but most of all to rewire and rethink who we are as a community, as creative entities, as business leaders/entrepreneurs, as human beings.
We are committed to continuing our unique programming and presentation processes but we are also taking important steps to vastly improve the underpinnings of our organization. We are confident that this internal reworking will greatly enhance your experience as both a concert goer and a presenter. Stay tuned for details.
We Value You and Our ShapeShifter Community
Even through this transition, we will continue to be a place and an organization that is responsive and community-driven. All that we’ve dreamed and accomplished is thanks to YOU. We are you and you are part of us now. We are eternally grateful for you and what you have brought to our lives. Thank you…
We have our sights set on a few different locations, all in Brooklyn at the moment, we will announce our new location as soon as we have all the pieces in place.
Meanwhile here is how you can stay connected and help us keep pushing the boundaries:
