FIELD Scotland

thank you

FIELD is an online residency designed to create space to talk, reflect, listen and be listened to. It is part of our ongoing conversational practice.

Thank you to all who expressed an interest in FIELD Scotland.

The residency will take place 15-26 March, and we'll let all those who got in touch know if we're able to offer them a place by 1st March.


In 2021, we will be focusing on value. This theme is an overarching umbrella under which this project sits. The individual conversations are directed by the interests of the participants. You can interpret the theme as broadly as you like -- but it definitely includes questions around:

  • how culture and the arts are valued

  • the relative value of differing roles within our sector (and its relation to pay)

  • what makes you feel valued -- and what makes you feel you aren't

  • the impact of the pandemic on what you value, or what society appears to value

  • interrogating the meaning of value itself

  • what you value in your practice, and how to protect/nurture/sustain that

  • the economics of the performing arts from a variety of perspectives

  • self-esteem: valuing ourselves

  • whether/how far/when the culture sector embodies its values?

  • ...the theme is just a way of threading our conversations together, and more tangential approaches are also welcome!

This project was made possible thanks to public funding from the National Lottery through Creative Scotland, with additional support from Macrobert Arts Centre, Tramway, Imaginate, Workroom and Eden Court.
