SHIFT is not conference, it’s an exclusive experience!

SHIFT is a fine-tuned balance of music festival vibes, cutting-edge knowledge and business opportunities. One thing that SHIFT has always been known for is a unique venue. Unlike most business events, SHIFT doesn’t happen in an expo center but instead it has been organized in medieval castles and abandoned prisons. The venue for SHIFT 2019 is the Ruissalo Shipyard in the picturesque archipelago of Turku, Finland. It’s right where the city meets the sea and you get a perfect mix of old industrial vibes with nature.

The Art & Experiences program has been designed to create a unique and holistic festival experience with experimental decorations, thought-provoking art installations, surprise performances, music and other entertainment.

SHIFT is not a place to visit, it’s a place to feel, explore and experience. And after two days it’s gone.

OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS

SHIFT is looking for artists!

 

All kind of art, from music to paintings and to performances, are an integral part of the SHIFT festival experience. The theme of SHIFT 2019 is ‘Shapeshifting Intelligence’ and we hope to find art that somehow relates to our theme. It could be anything – sound, video, light, painting, sculpture, installation and so on. We are most interested in why a piece is done and what is the idea behind it. We hope that art could open a dialogue between the SHIFT attendees by being thought-provoking, interactive and inspiring.
