The SHIFT Lorry is coming
Residents and workers of North Lanarkshire are invited to visit the Shift Lorry and to bring their work stories – the best, the worst, the funniest and the thing they’re most proud of.
You can also participate by bringing along a work related item, a uniform or some work clothing to be deposited in one of our lockers. The items collected will feature in our SHIFT: Locker installation taking place across North Lanarkshire from 11-16 December.

Share your work story
We’re looking to engage with different groups and individuals across North Lanarkshire to talk to them about their best jobs, their worst jobs, hilarious stories and moments of triumph.
These stories will shape the final SHIFT production taking place in March 2018. This final event will be a big, bold, visceral, life-changing participatory event for everyone to enjoy.
We’re looking for a diverse range of groups and individuals to take part in the project.
You don’t need any theatre experience at all.
You can take part in one or many workshops, you could be part of the final show, the amount you’re involved is up to you.
We’d love to hear from groups and individuals who would be interested in taking part in this exciting project.
Please contact Project Manager Leonie on
firstname.lastname@example.org or 07906 515 838 and we’ll arrange a time to meet and chat about it!
