Welcome to Sift. Shift. Lift.

Digging up stories long buried, and bringing them into the light.

Each month, Sift. Shift. Lift. introduces you and other likeminded readers 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. 

We’ll sift through the layers of confusion (or propaganda) to get to the root of each month’s topic. Just click on the carefully curated links to credible sources to dig deep.

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.
