We work hard to make Packback a safe environment where people can focus on doing great work instead of dealing with drama.

Makespace

The Packback team is full of creators who paint, write and perform. Born out of a simple idea that if we cannot fully express ourselves and explore our passions, then we cannot be our fullest and most vibrant selves at work, the team at Packback launched Makespace. Makespace is a monthly artist showcase where makers of all types come and share early experimental works in an environment that is supportive and generative.
