Makeshift

A journal of hidden creativity

MAKESHIFT is a quarterly magazine about creativity in unlikely places, from the favelas of Rio to the alleys of Delhi.

These are environments where resources may be scarce, but where ingenuity is used incessantly for survival, enterprise, and a self-expression. Makeshift is about people, the things they make, and the context they make them in.
