      !!!Please come help trim weeds at Artica!!!
      This Saturday, October 2nd, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
      Artica Site
      13 Dickson St, St. Louis, MO 63101
       
      As you know, Artica takes place in logistically challenging locations.  This
      challenge has always been part of the inspiration that drives the event.  Artica
      has always been an event of participation, populated with creative and adaptable
      people. 

       
      This year is no different, in fact the introduction of the mounds has radically
      altered the space and how people will interact with it. 

       
      Besides the mounds, there are weeds; weeds taller than a person.  Weeds taller
      than a person where artists may want to install projects, where participants may
      want to dance, where fires may want to light.  Some of these weeds must go.
       
      !!!Please come help trim weeds at Artica!!!
      This Saturday, October 2nd, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

      You bring the gear, I'll bring the beer!  The process will require:
          gas powered weed trimmers
          sling blades
          anything else to cut weeds with
          rakes
          shovels (maybe?)
          bundling twine
          gloves
          long sleeves
          eye protection
       
      Thanks you Articans (you probably are one and just do not know it yet),
      -Lohr

      It's time once again to gather the tribes!

      Saturday October 9th, 11:00am to Midnight
      Sunday October 10th, Noon to 8:00pm

      Location: The corner of Lewis and Dickson Streets on the North Riverfront

      Artica invites you all to summon your muses, pack up your gear and gather once
      again for St. Louis' most spectacular fab-dilly-iscious weekend of art,
      performance, music, ritual and creative revelry!

      Didn't get a proposal in? Well it's not too late! There's still time and space
      available to participate. Just email Artica2003@... with your idea and we'll

      find a site that's just right!

      Special Participatory Events!

      The Social Dreaming Matrix
      Saturday at 11:00am

      This year the Artica festivities start with the Social Dreaming Matrix. Join the

      Social Dreamers as they guide us through the spiral of our collective dreams.
      After the dreamtime has concluded feel free to creatively express yourself in
      your own way.

      The Boat of Dreams Parade
      Sunday at 2:00pm

      Don your wackiest costume! Create a biodegradable boat and join us as we parade
      to the river's edge to release our dreams! We also welcome any musicians to
      accompany us. Or just bring a drum and sing or hum!

      Extreme Croquet
      Sunday at 3:00pm

      This ain't your gramma's lawn game! This loosely "competitive" event will take
      you through some of the most challenging courses in croquet history! The rules
      are nebulous and the prize is just a piece of junk! Create your own mallet and
      bring a ball small enough to fit through a standard croquet wicket. Cheating is
      encouraged!

      Responsibility and Preparations
      Remember, at Artica we are all responsible for ourselves and the well being of
      our fellow Articans. Bring your own food and beverages (and some to share!).
      Whatever you pack in you pack out (remove your own trash). Be prepared for any
      type of weather. Wear sturdy shoes and sensible clothes. Be aware of your
      surroundings.

      Artica's New Neighbors
      Artica has new neighbors this year. The downturn in the economy has
      unfortunately left some people without homes and there are new neighbors
      encamped just west of the floodwall. It is very important that we respect these
      people and their spaces. Please contain your activity and creativity to the
      appropriate Artica site.
