2017 marks an exciting milestone for Fieldwork! We are celebrating our 10th anniversary this year with Soundwork - an exhibition of 6 new installations that will include the incorporation of sound. We hope you will journey out this season with friends and family to experience the diverse ways that artists think about, and use sound in their creative work at Fieldwork.
Soundwork: Opens Saturday, May 13
An afternoon of artists' talks, a tour, performances and workshops.

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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
