MAKE 17’s theme, Belonging, came about as our landscape was and continues to be dominated by issues surrounding immigration, systemic violence, and the question of who belongs. The year 2017 amplified the voices of those on the margins of society, but reactionary efforts to extinguish this speech also found new permission and impulse. Writers and artists are perhaps best equipped to express the humanity of peoples and cultures—to generate awareness, hope, and empathy. Now more than ever we must call on these voices.


MAKE #17 contributors include:

David Kholamian

Jennifer Nelson

Andrea Rehani

Kenyatta Rogers

Audie Shushan

Rachel Slotnick

and more 


As well as ensemble members from The Neo-Futurists
