Shift 20/20: “Me, JH & Nature”
Shift was commissioned by the Jackson Hole Travel and Tourism Board as part of their mission to develop Jackson’s year-round economy. The objective was to create an event with a triple bottom line: to increase tourism in October while also bringing value to the Jackson Hole community and to the environment in which it exists.
The first Shift Festival will be held on Columbus Day weekend, Oct. 11-13, with a focus on nature, culture, adventure and their respective intersections with conservation. Food, music and film will accompany the introduction of initiatives that inspire communities to preserve the natural capital that is vital to their economic success.
On Sunday, Oct. 13, Shift and the National Museum of Wildlife Art will present Shift 20/20: “Me & JH & Nature”. The evening will feature conservationists, artists, hunters, architects and entrepreneurs using the Japanese presentation form PechaKucha of 20 images for 20 seconds per slide to explore their personal relationship to nature and its place in Jackson Hole.
Ten 20×20 productions will be chosen to present in the Museum’s lobby, with all other entries loaded onto the Shift and Museum social media sites.
Entries will be judged by a jury and $1,000 will directed to the winning artist’s chosen non-profit that supports the introduction of initiatives that preserve Jackson Hole’s natural capital.
