Shift is a project that brings together a diverse group of Scottish and Icelandic designers and makers to talk, explore and inspire one another. Coming together through a series of exhibitions and activities, they will investigate one another’s location, environment, influences, skills, experience, materials and techniques.  Through discussion and experimentation each participant will consider how this has stimulated a shift in the emphasis, direction or focus of their practice.  This project is a catalyst for fresh ideas, new approaches to creative production, making contact with new audiences and markets and fostering a deeper connection between cultures.
