Town of Barnstable Application for HyArts Shanty Participation

Artists applying must be a Cape Cod resident spending at least six months a year at their  Cape Cod address as their primary residence. Artists may be asked to submit proof of residency.

Each year, the FIRST REVIEW of applications for participation in the upcoming season is December 15 of each year.

Applicants who submit by the first application review date and are accepted get placed for program dates and are notified by January 15 of each year.
This is the advantage of getting your application in early, however, this is not the final application deadline.

After this date, applications WILL CONTINUE TO BE ACCEPTED ON A ROLLING BASIS until all spots are filled.

There is a rolling application/jury process for any remaining openings and artists are encouraged to always submit an application to be considered for the current season as not all spots are filled during the first review.

Artists will always receive auto-confirmation by email that the application has been received.  Artists will be notified for either and in-person jury date or an acceptance decision within 8 weeks of submitting an application.

Applications are on a rolling basis until all spots are filled. Apply today!

Please contact  with any questions or comments about the program and application process.
