SELF-PRODUCING offers the opportunity to retain greater control over your work and essentially act as your own boss. It is a structure that puts a tremendous amount of freedom in the hands of creators, but with that freedom comes a ton of additional work and responsibility. Learn how to begin the planning process and assemble a basic strategy to get your work out into the world!

Facilitator Wilfredo Hernandez is a theatre/visual artist, cultural worker, educator, and Program Manager for The Field. He began his career as a self-producing artist when he, along with his family and close friends, founded Triple H Productions, Inc. in 2003. Wilfredo served as Producing Artistic Director and led the organization through eight seasons, directing over 35 productions. He has worked at Disney Theatrical Productions, La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club, Culture Hub, Dixon Place, NYU, and Joe's Pub at The Public Theater. He served as founding program manager of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts’ “Boro-Linc” which brought the best of LCPA’s eleven constituent organizations to audiences in the Bronx, Staten Island, and Queens in its first year. He is proud to serve as Arts & Culture Group Leader at The Brooklyn Community Pride Center where he recently managed the launch of the "LGBTQ New Americans" oral history project with Immigration Equality. Wilfredo holds an M.A. in Directing & Producing Theatre from NYU's Gallatin School of Individualized Study.

The Field is presenting this Toolbox as part of our partnership with the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York (NPCC). Open to members of both organizations, this workshop is designed to unite and empower our vibrant community of artists, activists, and administrators.
