Toolkit: Curating and Planning Events

Mark Allen

Common Field has partnered with Los Angeles-based founding member organization Machine Project to publish a series of toolkits that might be helpful for others in the field. In early 2018, Machine Project announced its closure after 15 years of experimentation. Machine hopes their groundbreaking work will inspire you to keep trying to get away with it all.

MACHINE PROJECT GUIDE TO CURATING AND PLANNING EVENTS
This tool kit covers the basic ideas, philosophies, and techniques for event-based programming. It’s for anyone interested in producing events as a form of cultural programming. It’s for anyone who wants to make something exciting happen with other people but isn’t sure where to start.
