Join us for an eight-week session of Fieldwork!
Eight Sundays | January 21 to March 11 from 2:30-5 PM at OuterSpace, 1474 N. Milwaukee Ave
with an informal showing on Saturday April 7 open to all participants to show their work-in-progress
Fieldwork is a process that supports the development of new artistic works. At each session, a group of artists show works-in-progress and exchange feedback with their peers in a format designed for and by artists. Incisive and stimulating critiques are facilitated in an objective, non-directorial way with a regular group of peers that support one another over the course of this eight-week session.
Fieldwork creates a safe space for artists to take risks while also leaving room to fail. Artists are drawn to Fieldwork because the weekly meetings provide a structure for the creative process. Since the workshop brings together artists of all disciplines, participants learn how their work reads to a variety of perspectives and develop the language to discuss work across multiple genres. It is a profound experience for everyone.
It is open to artists working in multiple disciplines: writers, composers, spoken word artists, performance artists, solo theater artists, choreographers, improvisers, directors and others working in time-based and other modes.
Co-facilitated by Jane Jerardi and Christine Shallenberg
