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 she says, “What did you think of my show?”


The Field/DC is a member of The Field Network, a national arts service organization. In DC, we have two Fieldwork for Mixed Disciplines workshops per year. Fieldwork is a process that supports the development of new artistic works. At each session, artists of any discipline show works-in-progress and exchange feedback with their peers in a format designed by artists.

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. We foster creative exploration, steward innovative management strategies, and are delighted to help artists reach their fullest potential.

The Field/DC Happy Hours
These happy hours bring together local artists of all disciplines with the goal of cross-pollinating our audiences.  All are welcome.
