2024 Open Calls
UPDATE 7/14/23: The deadline for the Open Calls has passed. Thank you to everyone who submitted proposals!
It’s time to start dreaming about shanty season…
CELEBRATE OUR TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY with your WILD, WEIRD, SHANTASTIC ideas!
Art Shanty Projects is currently seeking winter enthusiasts and creative adventurers to propose shanties, performances and art actions for the 2024 On-Ice Program which will take place on Bdé Umáŋ (Lake Harriet) from 10am-4pm on Saturdays and Sundays, January 20 – February 11, 2024.
With UPDATED guidelines and requirements in response to COVID, climate change and accessibility, we encourage you to read the specifics carefully! If you missed the ARTIST FORUM, see the slides! Zoom recording forthcoming.
Shanty artists build physical installations that remain throughout the month and are activated during all public festival hours. Shanties this year can be the classic interior version or can be an entirely exterior experience.
These artists make projects for shorter durations (an hour, a day, a few days, etc). They may or may not have physical structures. Our definition of ‘performance’ and ‘art action’ is broad.
Deadline for all applications: 11:59pm CST – Thursday, July 13, 2023
