2023 Open Calls

The open call deadline has passed! We will announce artists publicly in October.


It’s time to start dreaming about Shanty Season! 

Art Shanty Projects is currently seeking winter enthusiasts and creative adventurers to propose shanties, performances and art actions for the 2023 On-Ice Program which will take place on Bde Unma (Lake Harriet) from 10am – 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays, January 21 – February 12, 2023.

With continued guidelines and requirements in response to COVID, climate change and accessibility, we encourage you to read the specifics carefully and review the slides (with lots of images to illustrate examples) from our June 16 Artist Forum.
