Common Field Futures

What does Common Field mean to you? What could its aspirations be? 

The essential heart and soul of Common Field is its network of members — YOU and questions, contexts, publics and resources from your own experience. As a network, we are a vital source of information and inspiration for each other and the organization. Two Common Field board members invite you to join them to discuss and imagine the future of Common Field. We will use a modified version of Open Space  a participant-driven discussion process that puts you at the center. Join us to consider how Common Field will thrive as it continues to convene, publish, share resources, and connect arts organizers and artist-centered organizations.
