Rural cultural economies 7th November 2012 Newcastle UK
The wild place breeds a special kind of art. But urbanites don't always get us.
This event at Newcastle University focuses on how that might change The programme includes talks from a Development officer from Jura (an island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland) and also a representative from the organisation Littoral (a non-profit arts trust which promotes new creative partnerships, critical art practices and cultural strategies in response to issues about social, environmental and economic change).
The first part of the day explores strategic cultural policy and rural development research, the second part of the day focusses on a detailed view of rural cultural livelihoods and specific challenges of supporting and promoting rural creative micro-business.
