ABOUT THE FIELD
The Field is growing and transforming! We are looking for a passionate, dynamic, and service-minded new team member to participate in and support this growth.
The Field’s mission is to provide artists and artist-led organizations access to opportunities, resources, funding, and information to bring their visions to life. Through entrepreneurial capacity-building, thought leadership on subjects such as failure and privilege, and our Vision, a transformational suite of technology and human services, we put artists and artist-led organizations in charge of their money, their work, and their lives.
Founded in 1986, The Field has stewarded $45 million and given more than 38,000 artists and artist-led organizations the services, guidance and resources they need to bring their bold artistic visions to life. Noted for our excellent service delivery and human touch, our work has been recognized by the The New York Times, The Doris Duke Foundation, the NEA and more. Artists and artist-led organizations who have grown from our support include Kyle Abraham, Young Jean Lee, Kaneza Schaal, Michelle Dorrance, Okwui Okpokwasili, and hundreds of others.
The Field has operationalized practices and policies that support these values and we consistently invest in our education and professional development particularly regarding racial justice. We are learning and growing all the time. People of color, immigrants, women/femmes, LGBTQIA folx, and members of other historically undervalued groups are especially welcome and encouraged to apply.
