  • Making sure everything flows at the event
  • Developing the festival concept as part of the SHIFT executive team
  • Booking artists (performers, DJ’s eg.)
  • Negotiating with various suppliers to provide the event with all needed necessities
  • Working in close collaboration with our company partners, exhibitors and other related networks
  • Creating and producing new event activities throughout the year
  • Following and supervising the existing production budget


This position is perfect for you if you are:

  • A student or a graduate  of art or creative fields (artists, culture producers, event producers)
  • A person experienced in entertainment, events, and experiences
  • Interested in participatory art and sustainability
  • Interested in digital and virtual production
