Meet-Up Detroit

Arts Organizer Friends Across Detroit and Beyond:

We are excited to extend an invitation to you to join us at a Detroit meet-up of arts organizers with Common Field, a national network of independent visual arts organizations and organizers that connects, supports, and advocates for the artist-centered field. Common Field’s network includes contemporary, experimental, noncommercial artist-centric organizations and organizers including alternative art spaces, publications, digital platforms, residencies, collectives, collaboratives, and individual organizers.

The goal of the meet up is to connect the expansive Detroit artist organization field into dialog, talk about your opportunities and challenges, as well as what role Common Field might be able to play locally and nationally to amplify your work and ideas. This is Common Field’s first Detroit meet-up, and we're happy to extend free network memberships to all attendees. Common Field co-founder and Executive Director Courtney Fink will be in attendance. Pizza and refreshments will be provided! This event is open to all.

DATE: Monday, April 2, 2018
TIME: 6:30 - 9:00 PM
LOCATION: Popps Packing, 12138 SAINT AUBIN, HAMTRAMCK, MI 48212
REFRESHMENTS: Pizza and beverages of all sorts will be provided!

Please connect to the meet-up online. We encourage you to share an extend the invitation to others who you’d like to invite using our Facebook event.

Common Field was formed in 2013 and launched in 2015 with the goal of building visibility and viability for alternative arts organizations and initiatives around the country. Our vision is to increase understanding, involvement and knowledge of artists organizations and their value by building a platform for connection, knowledge, learning, and advocacy. Over the past four years Common Field has hosted 25 meet-ups across the country to spark conversation about how Common Field can be activated by local organizers.

Thanks to our early Detroit Common Field Network Members for their help mapping the local artists organization community. Current Common Field members include ARTS.BLACK, Powerhouse Productions, Popps Packing, Fringe Society, Good Lab, Ash Arder, Allison Wong and Zoe Minikes.
