Springboard on Ice serves as a continuation of Springboard's Site Activation program. Launched in early 2022 as a call for local artists to activate Springboard's space in Saint Paul, the program has since facilitated over 40 unique, artist-led events, including live performances, book releases, artist markets, festivals, and workshops.
