SHIFT (Surveying Hamilton Incomes, Future Transitions) is a festival in Hamilton ON, Canada during September, 2011 that gives a diverse constituency the opportunity to expand discourse surrounding the economic future of the city of Hamilton by the use of the arts (visual arts, theatre, music, media arts, dance etc.) and panel discussions.
