The Field offers Fiscal Sponsorship and Membership for fundraising support and in-the-trenches advice from expert staff and workshops that provide a safe and rigorous space for creative exploration. Founded by artists for artists, The Field also responds proactively to sector-wide challenges.
“Being a Field Sponsored Artist opens doors that would otherwise be closed. As a New York artist, The Field has provided me with deeply enriching opportunities, both performative and educational. I feel I have become a part of a community of artists. The Field creates a space for inventive art to flourish.” – Jessica DiMaurio
In the second half of our 30th anniversary year we are excited to present the following programs, which push us to actively engage artists, create new connections in our community and provide a forum for thought-provoking discussions.

- "I hate your work" will be presented at The Alliance of Artist Communities 2016 Conference in Portland, Oregon on Thursday, October 6th.
