Twice a year I facilitate a work group for artists to receive feedback on the work that they are making. This Fall we are meeting on five Sunday afternoons from 1-3pm at Hope Stone in the Montrose area. In the past the group has included choreographers, painters, doll makers, song writers, poets, musicians, performance artists, filmmakers, and several combinations for these. The group is called Fieldwork at it comes from a fabulous organization called The Field based in New York. This summer I was fortunate enough to be able to attend their Fieldwork Network Conference and meet with Facilitators from all over the world. Did you know that there are Fieldwork groups in San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Denver, Chicago, Seattle, Miami, New York, Berlin, Geneva, Atlanta, and others I’m sure I’m forgetting.
What is special about Fieldwork is that it is interdisciplinary, it gives us opportunities to grow in our vocabulary and the way we look at and discuss art, and it gives us framework and deadlines to get that project moving along. Any procrastinators out there?
The first session is always informative, and never binding. So come check it out! Sunday, September 8 from 1-3pm.
Do something good for yourself and your art. It’s important.
