AWARDS & MONEY
As our peers and mentors attest, The Field's 26 years of award-winning service stand as a tested and thriving model of best practices and vision for stabilization and growth of New York performing artists. We have received press coverage from WNYC Public Radio, The New York Times, Village Voice, The Chronicle of Philanthropy, and The Greenwich Times, to name a few. Our staff has received recognition from numerous sources including Brooklyn Arts Exchange (2 BAXten Awards), a 2006 New York Innovative Theater Stewardship Award for significant contribution to the Off-Off-Broadway community, and citations from the New York City Council for service to artists. We also commit time, knowledge, and passion to panels and symposia across the city and the country - participating on CUNY/Prelude Festival panels, Americans for the Arts' Creative Conversations, and the Pew Charitable Trust Task Force for the New York State Cultural Data Project.
