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 National Touring Exchange (NTE) program provides an opportunity for our national Field Network Site Leaders to build their capacities by working with other Field Network artists. This program pays for Field Network Sites (represented by a dance/movement-based artist/Fieldwork Facilitator) to travel to different cities for 2-7 days to learn, share, collaborate, and grow.
