The Field Network is a consortium of sites that provide Fieldwork workshops, The Field's signature method of peer to peer feedback, and other Field programs. Initiated in 1993, the Network has locations in cities across the United States and in Europe. Each site tailors its activities to the local community with the mission to support artists. Sites are stewarded by trained Fieldwork facilitators who also are practicing artists themselves.
With the support of the NEA, our next Field Network Conference will be February 3 - 5, 2017 in Miami, FL.
Field National Network Conference: In order to strengthen artists and arts communities all over the country The Field convenes our national site leaders so that they can strategically support their local artists. This conference also provides a training opportunity for artists who are developing Field sites in new cities.
The Network Touring Exchange* (NTE) 2016 was a pilot opportunity for our national Field Network Sites to build their capacity by working with other Field Network Sites. Represented by one dance/movement-based artist/Fieldwork Facilitator, a Fieldwork Site may travel to another Fieldwork site for 2-7 days to learn, share, collaborate and grow.
*This project is supported in part by The Field with an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
