Sift. Shift. Lift.

Each month, Sift. Shift. Lift. introduces you to the work of academics, artists and activists digging up forgotten, and often horrible, histories, and then bringing them into the light. Engaging your head, your heart and your hands in the struggle, one wicked problem at a time.

The fourth issue, which explores the Jeju uprising (April 1948 to May 1949) and its aftermath, was released Wednesday, March 10, 2021.

The April issue will focus on “The Troubles”, aka the Northern Ireland Conflict, from the late 1960s to the late 1990s.

Here’s what to expect if you sign up for Sift. Shift. Lift.

  • We’ll sift through the layers of confusion (or propaganda) to get to the root of each month’s topic. The bulletin will list key facts and provide links to credible sources for those who want to dig deeper.
  • We’ll check out art and artists whose work helps shift awareness and assumptions about the issue or historical event in question. Expect to see work by visual artists, filmmakers, playwrights, musicians and storytellers working in myriad genres.
  • Finally, we’ll consider what we can do to lift up those individuals or organizations striving to transform themselves and our world through compassionate action.
