Artists, musicians, poets, performers and all creative citizens are invited to submit project proposals for Artica 2017: ARTIKINETIC ENTANGLEMENT.
Artica is a multi-media, outdoor participatory arts festival developed to provide St. Louis with the opportunity to come together as a community through creative expression.
The Call to Art deadline is July 30th for proposals to be juried and receive honorariums for work at the event Oct 8th and 9th. If you are interested and able, you may submit your proposal by July 16th to participate in the Plein Poches event on July 22.
Please read the following guidelines and restrictions carefully before submitting
Artica organizers reserve the right to refuse any proposal that may be harmful or dangerous to the environment, wildlife or humans.
All elements involving fire will require a special fire permit and safety plans. For questions contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 314 363-3691
Please be aware that all work will be exposed to the elements and unprotected from scavengers and vandals.
Please be aware that the Artica site is in constant development and decay. Your selected site is subject to change at any time. Please be flexible.
It is highly recommended that artists tour the Artica site before developing and submitting proposals. The Artica site always changes and has changed dramatically since we last visited. Please look to our website at www.articastl.com for scheduled site visits.
All artists are responsible for expenses incurred in creating, producing, installing, maintaining and removing their work.
Anyone requiring special needs such as water, generators, electricity, lighting, projection, sound systems, etc. must provide their own equipment and have the expertise to operate such equipment in an outdoor environment, as well as coordinate the set up and use of said equipment with Artica organizers.
There may be other artists who require the same needs and are willing to share expenses, responsibility and expertise. Artica Organizers will do their best to create a contact network of artists for sharing resources.
After the festival, artists may choose to remove their work or leave it on the site. Intentional decay can be a beautiful and valid artistic statement. However artists should be respectful of public and private property and of safety issues.
This is a Leave-No-Trace event, other than art and goodwill. Our goal is to leave the Artica site cleaner than we found it. We intend to create a positive impact on this community not only with our art but also with our behavior. It is the responsibility of all artists to participate in cleanup activities.
