The Common Field Convening moving online
Apr 23 – May 3
The Common Field Convening – originally scheduled to take place in Houston, TX from April 23 – 26, 2020 – moves online in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. In this unprecedented situation, there remains an urgent need to stay connected, build knowledge from the field and create a growing set of broadly-shared resources accessible to all. To that end, registration for this year’s virtual Convening is FREE.
Also: There are many hospitals and healthcare workers looking for Personal Protective Equipment for health professionals fighting COVID-19. If you have any in your studio/gallery/home you can find a place to donate it here .
