Summer fieldwork start July 8th - *Register today!*


Fieldwork is a place for artists to learn about their work, develop their ability to give feedback, and build a community of artistic peer

The Field/DC is a member of The Field Network, a national arts service organization. Founded by artists for artists, The Field is dedicated to providing strategic services to thousands of performing artists and companies in New York City and beyond. They foster creative exploration, steward innovative management strategies, and are delighted to help artists reach their fullest potential.


what is fieldwork?

Fieldwork supports the development of new work without the pressures of producing a finished product all alone. The Fieldwork feedback method creates a safe space for the artist to take risks and leaves room to fail. Artists are drawn to Fieldwork because of the built in weekly deadline and the structure that it provides for the creative process. Since the workshop brings together artists of all disciplines, participants learn how their work is reading from many different perspectives and develop the language for discussing work across all artistic genres. It is a profound experience for everyone. If you love an artist, come do Fieldwork so that you have a response for your friend when they say, “What did you think of my show?”
