Artist Professional Development Workshop I: The Field
The Field is a peer-to-peer forum for artists to share work and exchange feedback. The Fieldwork method reveals how each piece is perceived by others and fosters a detailed information exchange that is both efficient and supportive. Insightful and stimulating critiques are guided by an experienced facilitator. Artists working in any medium (performing, visual, new media, craft, folk art, design, literary, music) are invited to attend, the groups are aesthetically diverse. Fieldwork is effective for beginning, emerging and established artists. Participants may share completed works or works-in-progress. By practicing Fieldwork, artists benefit from; expanding feedback skills across disciplines, connecting with other artists, jump starting their practice, making progress on developing projects, audience building, and gain an understanding of how and what their work communicates to viewers.
