AFIELD is a network of social initiatives from arts and culture.

Through a fellowship and a mentorship programme, it gathers and supports artists and cultural practitioners who develop social initiatives that benefit communities within and beyond the field of arts.

In the continuity of their artistic practice, or as a step “further afield”, selected initiatives enact positive, social, environmental and political change in response to the need of a community. This often takes the form of a school for new pedagogies, research centers or small businesses that share knowledge, address inequalities and prompt new perspectives.

As a network, AFIELD strives for horizontality and collaboration among members. Through monthly calls, peer to peer exchanges and a participatory grant, it fosters an infrastructure for mutual support. It also aims for the development of like-minded initiatives and their visibility across the globe.

Amplifying creative voices and solutions, AFIELD wishes to bring arts and culture at the foreground of social experimentation and international philanthropic thinking.
