Shift was set up in 2011 by Kim Simpson, a Glasgow based producer and artist looking for a vehicle to deliver a range of projects of different sizes and types. With the help of Jana Robert, Nicola Turner, Murray Buchanan and Gordon Beveridge Shift was born in a flat in the south side of Glasgow. Now Shift consists consistently of Kim and includes other artists, producers, clients and collaborators depending on the project. It’s an intentionally lean and flexible model enabling the company to work at all scales and with all types of artist and project, from the tiniest independent work to large scale international projects. Collaboration is the key and Kim seeks the necessary skills from other people in her network as and when they are needed.
