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.
Escape from the routine and break free from bad habits as you spend time with others exploring the natural world around you. 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 nature. SHiFT was created for the explorer, maker, and leader in all of us.

To be successful you need to understand how to logically work through solving a problem, but also emotionally connect with the user. Poems, music, and art have a way of transporting us to faraway places and engaging our emotional layers. But to be successful they need the technical attributes of rhyme, cadence, and experience. Engineered structures, products, and economies have the ability to provide trust through quantified experiences. They are a channel that can carry beauty and prosperity to the masses. The connection that math and music have is no accident. The power that physics and architecture create is well known. Come learn how to think through metaphors and create beauty from numbers.
The June 11th - 16th 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. Review their facebook pages for information about the land and the resources.
