Selection Process
A multidisciplinary jury will judge proposals on the following criteria:
· The creativeness and integrity of the proposal
· Incorporation of the arts and other disciplines
· Evidence of previous exploration of environmental topics
· Creative use of ASITW resources including its natural environment and proximity to the Mississippi River
· Harmony of purpose with the ASITW mission to protect and preserve its bottomland hardwood forest
· The proposal’s public component and its depth of engagement with the community
· Please note that the fragile environment poses restrictions to what can happen on site. We ask that proposals moderate the number of visitors, penetration of the woods, and use of natural found materials.

Artist Eligibility
Visual, musician/composing, performance, literary, new media, and interdisciplinary artists. Both established and emerging artists are encouraged to apply, but a rigorous work ethic and demonstrated commitment to environmental issues are expected. Students are not eligible.
