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.

Visualist Chicago

The Visualist, www.thevisualist.org, is more than just a list of dates and events on the internet. It's a really long list of dates and events for exhibitions, artist talks, receptions, festivals, panels, performances, readings, fairs, workshops, and curated content all kinds. At its heart the Visualist is really a cursory archive of actions and engagements throughout Chicagoland. In time, this archive will reach back to the Brunswick Building fire of 1989. While creating this image of Chicago's cultural work, the Visualist is also being updated throughout the week to provide as complete and accurate a day-to-day accounting of these activities as is possible.
