The Rural

Through a programme of public events and research, the project will explore contemporary art in the rural sphere. Many contemporary artists, architects and creative practitioners are challenging the assumptions made about rural life, providing a new vision of the countryside grounded in everyday experience. From re-imagined farming practices and food systems to architecture, community projects and transnational local networks, this programme brings these projects to the foreground, inviting a careful and critical look at our relationships with the rural today.
