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.

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.
