Common Field is a national network of 600+ independent visual arts organizations and organizers that connects, supports, and advocates for the artist-centered field.

From November 2-5, 2017, Common Field will host its annual Convening in Los Angeles. The Convening brings together 350+ organizers from across the country for three days of dialog, discussion, debate, workshops, and practical and social exchanges exploring the state of our field.

We invite you to gather together to have a dialog and connect with organizers from small arts organizations across Los Angeles, learn more about Common Field, and get involved in the upcoming Convening.

We hope to see you there!
