Common Field is a visual arts organizing network connecting contemporary, experimental, noncommercial artist-run and artist centered spaces and initiatives. Their yearly convening (which began as Hand-in-Glove and was hosted in New Orleans in 2013) will be in Miami on October 20-23, connecting 350+ arts organizers from around the country to explore contemporary issues of arts organizing.
We invite anyone currently working on or even thinking about organizing alternative art spaces, publications, digital exhibition venues, festivals, residencies, collectives, and collaboratives. During this event attendees will be able to sign up for a Common Field membership for free, which normally starts at $50, which also gives you a discount to the convening in October.
During this meet-up, we will organize several informal group discussions around challenges, opportunities, and ideas relevant to organizing in our region. FOOD AND DRINK WILL BE PROVIDED! Antenna will also be organizing a passenger van trek down to Miami for those interested in attending the convening and traveling on the cheap, and signup for that will happen at this event as well. See you soon!
