Rural Arts Event

Posted on September 29, 2019
  1. Saturday 12th October 2019

Back in June I left our rural surroundings for a couple of days to attend a conference at Whitechapel Gallery. The focus of the conference concerned artists working in rural locations.

The Rural Assembly introduced artists from around the world, notably Taiwan, USA, Norway and UK. The conference surveyed the experiences, challenges and rewards of creative practice in rural places.

To share what I’ve learnt from these artists I’m organising an event on Saturday 12th October:  an informal get together for artists, curators and others involved in rural arts. As well as talking about the conference we’ll be discussing the experiences and rewards of working in Herefordshire and the Marches in these challenging times.

The event is free of charge and takes place at Brampton Bryan Village Hall, SY7 ODH on Saturday 12th October, from 11.00am – 2pm. Coffee and cakes on arrival. Please bring lunch to share. Walk in Brampton Bryan Park 2pm – 3.30pm optional.

Please email me katemorgan-clare@hotmail.co.uk to attend or for further information.

With thanks to Great Place Herefordshire’s Go & See Bursary for funding this event, and my attendance at the Rural Assembly Whitechapel Gallery, London.
