Soundwork 2017 - Call for proposals. Deadline March 15, 2016.
We are excited to announce that Fieldwork's 2017's exhibition will feature sound-based installations and performances. Interested? Have a look at our Call for Proposals and Guidelines HERE.
The Fieldwork Collective is gearing up for another super year.
Some things to look forward to in 2016:
- The launch of our new website. Keep your eyes peeled.
- 5 new visual art installations opening Saturday, May 7. Work by Jolie Bird, Janine Miedzik, Marco D'Andrea, Chris Turnbull, and a collaboration between Jerrard and Diana Smith, Gayle Young and Reinhard Reitzenstein
- The second edition of Framework: Words on the Land - the writers' weekend and reading we launched last year was a hit and we are doing it again this year with a whole new group of writers. A public reading of their work - created over the course of a weekend at Fieldwork - will happen Sunday, August 21.
- NEW this year! Into the Woods: Landscape and the Old Stories. An engaging afternoon with storytellers recounting tales inspired by the land at Fieldwork. Saturday, September, 24.
For a dose of inspired, creative action in the middle of rural Ontario plan your visit to Fieldwork. It's a wonderful place winter, spring, summer and fall to get lost in wonder.
Interested in volunteering? We'd love to talk. Please send us an email.

Here are ours:
Fieldwork has been funded by the Ontario Arts Council since 2008. We also rely on the generosity of our supporters. We appreciate donations of any size. Please contact us to discuss.
FIELDWORK is open to the public daily, all year and free of charge. Just park and walk.
Note: Please remember that it is a natural setting and there are bugs (including ticks). Be sure to dress accordingly and cover up.
Directions to the project are here
Since its inception in 2008, FIELDWORK has been run by a team of artists (The Collective) that volunteer their time and energy to make FIELDWORK a vibrant and dynamic destination for the creation and experience of site-specific artwork in and around a field in eastern Ontario, close to the towns of Perth and Maberly.
FIELDWORK hosts work by local, national and international artists at various stages of their careers and invites the public to visit and explore the artwork all year long. FIELDWORK also hosts workshops in collaboration with other organizations.
The Collective looks after the site, co-ordinates and promotes projects, shares administrative duties and makes joint curatorial decisions. From time to time the Collective members also create their own FIELDWORK installations.
The FIELDWORK Collective welcomes proposals from interested artists and circulates a public call for proposals annually in January. Suggestions and proposals for events or workshops are also welcomed from the local community, schools and arts organizations that are interested in fostering connections, dialogue and creative action between people, art, and nature. Please contact us at email@example.com
