Empowered women, empowering words...

SHIFT 1-Act Festival 9 was curated by jury, assembled from diverse creators, pulling together an ad-hoc artistic team, offering talented #localoriginals a platform, a voice, an audience.

This year the focus was on female playwright/performers, expanding festivities, and community engagement. A successful festival-wide Giving Campaign ($500) benefitted the DOWNTOWN EASTSIDE WOMEN'S CENTRE.

 

Big ups to this year's jury:

Dani Fecko, Anton Lipovetsky, David Mann
