Birds Hill Park July 9-12, 2009. We are requesting proposals for outdoor site

Types of projects we are seeking include (but not limited to):
    visual art (including theatre/dance/performance/ritual)
    green art projects (promoting sustainable culture & recycling in the
      campground, or constructed from recycled materials)

    temporary communal structures (social sculpture)
    signage and/or way-finding sculpture
