Summer Field Studies is an interactive Test Site program that explores our relationship to landscape through a series of field guides developed by artists, musicians, permaculture advocates, curators, activists, sailors, poets, and adventure seekers.

These guides introduce visitors to a variety of individual and collaborative projects from around the Pacific Northwest that work with experiential and movement-based practices to mediate our relationship to urban and rural environments. From hiking and cycling to music and poetry, these projects offer alternative perspectives on how to mindfully navigate and respond to landscape, whether it be at home or out in the wilderness.
