Common Field 2019 Convening Philadelphia was a tremendous success, bringing together 540+ attendees, including hundreds of local and national presenters, organizers, artists, scholars, thinkers, and friends. From April 25-28, 2019, the Convening attendees gathered at the Friends Center, as well as satellite sites, for four days of panels, sessions, workshops, local tours, and evening programming. Attendees enjoyed the opportunity to gain a deep grasp of Philadelphia’s dynamic arts scene while exchanging critical conversations, resources, visioning, tools and vulnerabilities on navigating the national arts/arts organizer field.
