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. Each site tailors its activities to the local community with the mission to support artists. Sites are stewarded by trained Fieldwork facilitators who are also practicing artists themselves. 

At $100 per year, Field Network Members get all the basic Member Benefits* of The Field, PLUS:

  • Access to up-to-date Fieldwork Guidelines and Facilitator Training Manual.
  • Guidance from the National Network Manager and Field New York.
  • Access to opportunities for professional and creative development offered exclusively to Field Network members. (Examples: Funding to attend the biennial conference and funding for racial justice/antiracism training.)
  • Periodic network updates and network conference calls to discuss issues in Fieldwork and arts advocacy. (Past topics have included how to market Fieldwork and racial justice, inclusion in Fieldwork.) 

*For an additional $150 you are also eligible to become a Member of The Field's Sponsored Artist Program. Contact Shawn René Graham at for details on upgrading to fiscal sponsorship.
