      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

      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.

      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
          shovels (maybe?)
          bundling twine
          long sleeves
          eye protection
      Thanks you Articans (you probably are one and just do not know it yet),

      The Social Dreaming Matrix
      Saturday at 11:00am

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

      Don your wackiest costume! Create a biodegradable boat and join us as we parade

      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!).

      type of weather. Wear sturdy shoes and sensible clothes. Be aware of your

      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.
