You are invited to join together for a conversation, gathering and program for artist-centered spaces, projects and organizers. The Common Field St Louis Meet-Up aims to bring together arts organizers to discuss challenges, opportunities, and ideas relevant to their local context. Attendees will also have an opportunity to learn more about how Common Field serves as a national resource to connect a broader field of artist-centric spaces and projects across the country.

The goals of the Meet-Up are to connect St. Louis arts organizers and small-scale arts organizations with one another and build dialogue among communities; talk about our shared opportunities and challenges, what we need, and what role Common Field might play to amplify our work and ideas to a national network; share and identify if and how we are sharing resources with each other and encourage deeper collaboration among our artist spaces; and learn about Common Field, the upcoming April 25 - 28, 2019 Philadelphia Convening and opportunities for support.
