Chris Tyler (they/them) is an organizer and performing artist who moonlights as Common Field's Communications & Operations Manager. Their style has been called “equal parts hilarious and chilling” (Fusion),“precise-yet-butchered” (Out) and “so cute” (Taylor Swift).

Most proudly, Chris was a founding member of the BAMunion Organizing Committee while working at the Brooklyn Academy of Music from 2014-2018. This past spring, they collaborated with former colleague Emily Searles to produce Collectivizing Cultural Work for Common Field's 2020 Online Convening. Featuring organizers from across the country, the session introduces cultural workers to the fundamentals of collective bargaining by exploring the logistical and legal processes that go into forming a union.
