      --------------
      WHAT IS ARTICA
      --------------
      Artica is an outdoor multi-media art festival,
      parade and workshop series developed to provide
      the people of the St. Louis metropolitan area
      with the opportunity to come together as a
      community through creative self-expression.

      The event takes place along the Mississippi
      riverfront in order to revitalize an area that
      has been polluted, neglected and abandoned for
      far too long. Although our audience is
      primarily all of the citizens of the St. Louis
      metropolitan area, the whole world is invited
      to attend and expected to participate as
      co-creators during the festival.

      Artica’s development is as fluid as the river
      it celebrates, and its scope depends greatly
      upon the involvement of the community.

      Artica will happen on the St. Louis riverfront
      between the Arch and the water, north of the
      Poplar Street Bridge, and south of, and upon
      the riverfront main stage on
      October 11 & 12 (Saturday and Sunday), 2008.


      ----------------------
      ANYONE CAN PARTICIPATE
      ----------------------
      Art projects of any type are encouraged and
      welcome at Artica. All artists and creative
      citizens are invited to participate whether
      they receive a grant or not. Also all
      musicians, poets, dancers, puppeteers and
      performance artists are encouraged to busk
      at the festival with the approval from Artica.
