ABOUT FIELD WORK:
Fieldwork is for Creators: Solo Performing Artists, Writers, Composers, Choreographers, Playwrights, Multidisciplinary Artists, Poets, Vocalists and more! Fieldwork is a unique forum for artists to meet weekly and share developing works and exchange feedback, peer to peer, culminating in the Fieldwork Showcase performance.
Fieldwork is for the artist that wants to create work outside of a vacuum, within a community of fellow art makers. Fieldwork provides real and honest facilitated feedback rather than the veneer of "good job". By participating in Fieldwork, you can participate in the critique process alongside fellow artists.
Fieldwork participants say:
"The feedback I get in Fieldwork is a unique opportunity to hear about the detailed, unfiltered experience of a viewer. It's helped me be more thoughtful about my creative process and more mindful of the experience of the audience."
"It's Houston's best kept secret for developing work and community."
"Participating in Fieldwork creates an intimate collective of fellow art makers that allows for honest and unbiased feedback for works in progress."
CORE DANCE is a founding member of the Field Network in partnership with The Field (NYC). The Field Network is a consortium of sites that provide Fieldwork workshops, a signature method of development based on peer to peer feedback, and other Field programs. Initiated in 1993, the Network has locations in cities across the United States and in Europe. Each site tailors its activities to the local community with the mission to support artists. Sites are stewarded by trained Fieldwork facilitators who also are practicing artists themselves.
DANCE SOURCE HOUSTON's mission is to nurture and support contemporary dance artists, the organizations that present them, and to identify and build audiences for contemporary dance in the greater Houston area.
FRESH ARTS is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to strengthening the sustainability and vibrancy of Houston's arts sector by bolstering the capacity and professional practice of artists and arts organizations and enhancing the public's engagement with the arts.
