Common Field Session
Organized by Sarah Williams/ Women's Center for Creative Work

This panel highlights the work of practitioners who create structures for shared power that can be used as guides for burgeoning community organizations, collaboratives, or projects. While the content may change, the creation of structure as practice produces exportable models that have value across interests, disciplines, and places. We’ll explore this kind of structure design within arts organizations, and its value in a larger context.
