The Field Network

The Field Network is a consortium of sites that provide Fieldwork workshops (our signature method of nondirectorial, artist-to-artist 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.

Want to start a Field Network site? Contact The Field Network Manager, Katherine Longstreth, at pdx@thefield.org.

The Network Touring Exchange* (NTE) was launched in 2016 as 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, this program enables a Field Network Site to travel to another one for 2-7 days to learn, share, collaborate and grow.
