Event description

Description

Many times we don't get the choice, but there is always a catalyst. An event. The uncontrollable. The inevitable. We all experience those moments that change the course of our life, career, or project.

Let's examine our perception of death and act purposely together to explore how to harness this natural cycle and enhance our design skills. As we discover more about the circular economy, product lifecycles, and mother nature, this new knowledge will begin to influence our personal and professional decision-making abilities. During this week, you will engage with industry professionals, professors, and peers to practice your new capabilities to overcome difficulties during the creative process.

Grow through the unknown to develop your distinct view of death and discover how to harness this catalyst. What will the new you create on the other side?


"A lot of times, things that I think are going to work come to a halt, and you realize that you have to kill the thing that's precious to you and turn it into something else." - Gabi, Industrial Designer, Electrolux


"Sometimes it takes a spark as heavy as death or as deep as death to ignite a change." - Rose, Designer, The Columbus Architectural Studio


"The phrase, Ars Moriendi, is literally the 'Art of Dying.' It's the idea that there is such a thing as a good death. A death that accomplishes its goals and does so in a manner that is neither unwarranted nor unwelcome." - Justin, Professor of Classics, University of Tennessee Chattanooga


"Die every night…to live every day" - Jeevak, Vice President, Strategic Growth, Sundberg-Ferar Design




SHiFT is a location inspired experience that connects students and professionals from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds through workshops and community projects. While here you will be involved in deep conversations with thought leaders, engage in physical activities that re-invigorate the soul, and collaborate in challenges that expand the mind. These events are focused around team building and understanding the power of the creative problem solving process. Learn from experts, teach others, and create something together.

With forests filled with creeks, caves and trails, there are endless opportunities to spend time appreciating the world we too often overlook. SHiFT’s goal is about forging strong, long-lasting relationships through hands-on activities in diverse settings. By bringing students and professionals from around the world together for a unique experience, we aim to reignite our playful relationship with one another. SHiFT was created for the explorer, maker, and leader in all of us.

The June 7th - 12th event will be held at the famous Seven Springs Lodge and Rattlesnake Saloon. It is a family managed farm with over 3,000 acres, restaurant, and facilities. Seven Springs Lodge 1292 Mt Mills Road Tuscumbia, AL 35674‎ (256) 370-7218. What3Words Address ///goodbye.exert.rural
