Arts and culture workers need access to opportunities, resources, funding, advice and information to bring their visions to life. It is The Field's mission to provide this access for artists, with an intentional focus on those who experience barriers to advancement based on race, cultural identity, disability status, sexual orientation, or other identities.

These values are manifested in our programming, staffing, and advocacy. The Field is intentionally practicing, implementing, learning, and doing. The work is constant and consistent. We are a work-in-progress.

Ultimately, it is our goal to create a vibrant cultural community that authentically and intentionally includes a representation of resilient and self-determined artists and makers of all identities.
