The Friends of Swede Hollow are seeking artists for a community/family annual arts festival, Art In The Hollow, that fills an urban ravine-based park with art at the beginning of the summer.

Deadline: 25 May 2019
There is a $15 booth fee and no application costs.
Art in the Hollow is the only arts festival exclusive to St. Paul’s east Side, filling a cultural vacuum in an area of town which is otherwise overflowing with cultural enrichment from waves of immigration from Latin America, SouthEast Asia, Eastern Europe, and the horn of Africa. The park has a long history of habitation by Dakota people and incoming immigrants from Sweden to Mexico, reflected outward now in the surrounding East Side communities. Today, Swede Hollow park is a refuge for artists on the first Saturday of each June.
Vendor booths are situated along a pathway which wraps around the main stage on one end of the festival and along a pathway overlooking a creek to the far end of the festival where a second stage is situated under a historic stone bridge. A limited rain site space is available for some artists in the event of very severe weather. In addition to the vendor booths, the Friends of Swede Hollow sponsor a sculpture contest with a $15 entry and hundreds awarded in prizes.

The Field Kitchen Academy is an interdisciplinary educational residency programme that gathers artists/ creative minds, a resident chef, and prominent experts from different fields together around a kitchen table through mind-opening acts and actions.
Deadline: 23 Jun 2019
A total of ten residents will be accepted to join the upcoming Field Kitchen Academy in its two modules. Curated by Ece Pazarbaşı under the title of Silence with the Consent of Sound, residents will use the notion of silence in sound as a gateway to opening various sensory experiences. Residents will experiment towards transgressing the well-accustomed idea that silence, as used as a “sound” component in sound art and music, creates an aspect of empowering the work itself by making it stronger. Use of silence can accentuate the other frequencies. At the same time, sound might accentuate the silence further. Silence in sound creates a passage to other senses of the body. With silence, the journey with sound enables quick shifts and glitches from auditory senses to the enhanced senses of sight, touch, smell, and taste.
Composed of two intertwined modules, the educational residency offers ten residents through applications from artists, chefs, and other creative minds to address these issues.
The ten selected residents will have the opportunity of pursuing processes of experimentation, discussion, trial and error, the progression of knowledge, and know-how in working sessions during the first three weeks. The last half week will be the ‘simmering’ period where the residents are expected to do Nothing.
The selection process will be pursued by a jury including Mario Asef, Ursula Block, Cevdet Erek, Brandon Labelle, and Ece Pazarbaşı.
Educational Residency Modules
- Module #1 (17 – 23 August 2019) Working Session: Nothing Breaking the Losing with Juliana Hodkinson (composer and musician) and Performance: Choreomania by Emma Howes (contemporary dancer)
- Module #2 (24 August – 11 September 2019) Working Session: cycle.silence.rhythm with Ali M. Demirel (visual artist) and Robert Lippok (musician, composer, visual artist, and set designer); In the Silence with Diligence with Ji Woo and Sun Woo (Zen masters); sssshhhh… with Hans Peter Kuhn (sound and visual artist); The Multi-Sensory Essence of Our Existential Experience with Juhani Pallasmaa (architect) and the simmering session.
- Chef in Residence: Betul Insel Karahan
- 690 Euros – Both Module #1 and Module #2 for the entire period (16 August – 11 September 2019)
