Fringe Programme

SHIFT 2020 – 7-11th September 2020 – live online

SHIFT is a progressive week of interactive workshops, activities and break-out conversations and reflections facilitated by leaders in design innovation,  performing and production arts, screen, curation and creative project management – among others.

Working with your peer group from several institutions, across a range of disciplines and different skills, SHIFT is designed to equip you with the collaborative, practical, creative and business skills that will support you to make the shift from being a student to becoming an independent professional practitioner in the cultural and creative industries.

If you are involved in entrepreneurship, enterprise careers or student support activities and would be interested having your own events recognised as part of the Festival, get in touch! We welcome new additions to the Fringe programme.

Other Events
