With programs at THE FIELD


Dear Artists & Colleagues,


While the weather is still a bit brisk, The Field's got some enticing reasons for you to whisk your way to one of our workshops!


JumpstART begins on Saturday.  To quote instructor Fran Kirmser, arts consultant and Broadway producer extraordinaire: Tackling text, budgets and planning with the support of a group and guidance of an instructor can be a terrific boost that allows artists to see how capable they are.  


Applications for the Spring-Summer Field Artist Residency providing uber-subsidized rehearsal space at our lovely Chelsea studio have just been posted! 


And remember we're moving!  Our office will be closed Thursday & Friday.  We'll re-open on Monday at 75 Maiden Lane, Suite 906, between William & Gold Streets.  Come visit! 


From all of us at The Field,
Jennifer, Shawn René, Cara, Shama, Pele, Bill, Liza, Chongsi & Cassie 


A few spots still left!

With Fran Kirmser
Saturdays, 10am-2pm - February 23, March 2, 9, 16

-matching your work/project with appropriate opportunities
-production planning and creating timelines
-drafting comprehensive budgets
-identifying resources

-audience development

Creative Opportunity
> Spring Residency Period: April 29 to July 7

            That's space at about /hour!

Artists have it hard enough as it is. This program provides subsidized rehearsal space to alleviate the financial and logistical burden of the 'space chase' so that artists can focus on their creative process.
