The Field Center is first and foremost an educational center for arts practices and because of that our programs and curriculum drive our calendar and our time here and we do not host folks not on staff or faculty when events are not in session.

However we do offer a program for folks to stay on site here. Our 'Working Residents' are people who want to learn more about spaces like ours, gain valuable experience in the field or simply want to work in exchange for access to our programming. This application-based position is available to up to 3 people per month for up to one month at a time.

Our Working Residents or REZZIES complete their daily hours under the guidance of our Residential Life Coordinator in everything from building maintenance, garden work, light administration and kitchen assistance.

In exchange they receive a room and access to all programs [aside from residencies] during their session. This is a popular programs and only available to up to 3 people at a time, so do be prepared for limited access. If you are interested in become a Working Resident or in finding more information- please reach out to us by EMAIL
