This workshop is for any kind of time-based performance: music, dance, theater, puppetry, spoken word. If you need a deadline to begin, deadlines to work up to a public performance, or could use some perspective on what you are making, this is it; this is for you.
Fieldwork is a place and time for performing artists to learn about their work, develop their ability to give feedback, and build a community of artistic peers. You will get responses to what you are making in a way that respects the intent of the work and allows you to discover your own solutions.

Flower Creep Project/ Ongoing
- Community art project -
conceived by The Scraper
Flower Creep is originally the ongoing invitation to draw flowers on the walls and floor of our Corner Studio by the local passers by, visitors, workers, travelers, etc that stop by our space. The concrete floor was eventually covered by a wood sprung floor but the power of the action rests underneath. The action was originally conceived as a christening of the new art/performance space by the love of the community.
Recently the invitation was extended locally to the fence of the Hope Village Farmers Market.
The Scraper is interested in changing perception of space by bringing people together trough art actions. She's planning on having her Grand Flower Project Finale in the spring of 2020.
The Scraper is also a founding member here at Andy.
