ShiftChange: The Conference

February 9 - 23, 2021


ShiftChange 2021

In response to the rapid growth of festival presenters within the Atlantic Presenters Association’s membership, APA planned Atlantic Canada’s first festival conference, ShiftChange: Festival Perspectives from Atlantic Canada and Beyond.

This annual conference has become an important fixture in the industry with the goal of furthering the development of the festival-presenting sector in Atlantic Canada. The conference, featuring festival-focused professional development and networking, provides attendees with the information to make their festivals stronger and more sustainable, discover what is new and trending from leading experts, and share ideas and collaborate with colleagues.

ShiftChange is open to both members and non-members and many industry and sector organizations are invited to attend including festival and theatre presenters, venue operators, event producers and tourism and municipality operators.
