The frozen ice may be gone for the season but what a perfect time of year to conspire, share resources, and hatch new ideas in advance of the 2018 ArtShanty Projects on-ice program at Lake Harriet (Mde Unma).
We’re bringing current and curious artists, partners, and sponsors together who are ready to think ahead to building and programming on a new body of frozen water in Minneapolis. Conversations and exchanges throughout the night will help Art Shanty Projects shape and modify the Call for Artists (June) and Programming (July) to make this magical art happening more accessibly and inclusive to our diverse creative community.
After a few words of advice from past Art Shanty Project artists and staff, we’ll set the Swap / Meet activity into motion. Attendees will be paired with each other for a series of timed and short one-on-one conversations aimed to spark new connections and provide a platform to exchange resources. Art ShantyStaff will be available to answer provide resources and answer questions.
