Along the shores of the Mississippi river lies a place where hawks soar through long forgotten structures, wild flowers emerge from time worn rubble, ancestral ghosts keep watch over the land and the people of St. Louis gather once a year to summon the spirits of creative community! // ARTICA

Artist, musicians, dancers, poets, performers and creative citizens are invited to participate in Artica. Artica is a multi-media, outdoor participatory arts festival developed to provide the people of the St. Louis metropolitan area with the opportunity to come together as a community through creative self-expression. Artica’s philosophy is one of openness and inclusion. All are welcome to create, participate and celebrate on this sacred heritage site.

Artica 2011 will take place on Saturday, October 8th from noon to midnight and Sunday October 9th from noon to 8:00pm in the area around Dickson and Lewis Streets north of the gateway arch.

Artica is funded by a generous grant from the Missouri Arts Council. They have money to pay artists for their work and participation in the event. Don’t miss your chance to collaborate in this interesting environment! APPLY!
