ACCEPTING ARTIST PROPOSALS
NOW THROUGH AUG 28th, 2013
for St. Paul Open Streets!
ARTIFY is seeking local artists who live, work and play in the Hamline-Midway area to propose creative activities to perform, conduct, implement, and share at the first St. Paul Open Streets event on Sunday September 15th, 2013 at Hamline Station located at 1333 University Ave. W., St Paul, MN.
Theme: “Home is…”
(What makes a place feel like home? … a neighborhood? … a community?”)
St. Paul Open Streets bring together families, neighbors and friends to mingle, recreate, dine, play and shop in their community in a safe, car-free environment. This is not a race. Participants can explore the street that is open only to foot, bicycle and skate traffic. In addition to bicycling, walking and skating, there are programmed recreational activities for all ages along the street. Some of these activities might include yoga, zumba, games and dance lessons. There will also be musical performances and classes on bike safety and repair.
During St. Paul Open Streets, ARTIFY activities will primarily take place outdoors in the parking lot. We imagine a festive, family-friendly atmosphere where everyone feels welcome, learns about placemaking, sees what can be done using the arts to revive this lot on the Avenue.
Artists may propose one or more activities in the categories listed. Activities may be something you do regularly, have done in the past, or brand spanking new. Other artists and/or volunteers may be involved in implementing activity (up to you). All artist-led activities will be outdoors, without a stage. Stage will only be provided for performances.
