Thanks to WWU’s 2014 graphic design BFA students for creating this beautiful video showcasing all the great stuff that happens at Make.Shift!
We’re so proud that Cascadia Weekly readers voted Make.Shift “Best Bellingham Gallery” for the third year in a row! Check out the lovely things they said below:
Make.Shift is excited to announce that we recently received an FCC license to build a low-power FM community radio station in Bellingham.
We’re in the early feasibility and budgeting stages of this project, and are seeking community input in addition to monetary and equipment donations. Please join us for a public visioning meeting on Oct. 11 at the downtown Bellingham Co-Op Connections Building, 1220 N Forest St. There we’ll outline the next steps in moving forward with this new project, including projected budget, fundraising goals, and equipment needed. We will also be accepting tax-deductible monetary donations. We want to hear from residents on what you’d like to see in a new community radio station, talk about how to get involved, and brainstorm with others who love radio.
Low Power FM stations (LPFM) are community-based, non-commercial radio stations that operate at 100 watts or less and reach a radius of 3 to 7 miles. With the help of radio advocacy group Common Frequency, Make.Shift applied for an LPFM license in 2013, during what may have been the last application window ever for LPFM stations across the nation. We received our licence earlier this year.
Please join us on Sat. Oct. 11 at 3 p.m. at the Co-Op Community Connections Building to learn more.
We are now accepting applications for our annual DIY holiday art/craft sale at Make.Shift Art Space! Find the application and event details here: 2014MakeSaleApp.
