The Field Center is an educational center for arts practices that serves as a resource for working artists at all stages of their career to focus on their work, develop their teaching and performance practices and build stronger collaborative relationships with one another.
The Field Center’s primary aim is to provide alternatives to academic models to performance, dance and interdisciplinary arts education. They strive to cultivate accessible and open programs that reduce competition within the arts and exist as a counterpoint to application-based programs.
Programming at the Field Center is year round and is generally divided between weekend-long events and longer workshops/intensives in which small groups live and work together for 7-14 days at a time, generally led by 1-2 teachers from a variety of disciplines.
During the summer months, they host a variety of festivals and cultural events.
Additionally they work to host ‘summits’ or symposiums of people within the performing arts fields to gather and discuss aspects of their work and practices as a way of fostering community.
