He has been significantly involved in international theatre for the past 25 years. He served as designer for the American exhibitions at the 1991 and 1995 Prague Quadrennials, a major international exhibition of theatrical scenic and costume design, winning a gold medal in 1991 for "Mozart in America."

Fielding has been a member of and delegate to the International Organization of Scenographers, Technicians and Architects of Theatre, serving as chair of its publications committee for many years.

A fellow, former vice president and long-time board member of the United States Institute for Theatre Technology, Fielding served for seven years as editor of USITT publications-including the Theatre Design & Technology and Sightlines-and received that organization's Founders Award in 1992.
