Connecting Irish and Scottish Artists and Writers with Rural Practices and Narratives

About the Project

The objective of The Rural Reimagined is to enrich connections and establish new links between Irish and Scottish artists and writers, including selected members of four existing place-based research networks, whose creative practices focus on rurality.

The 6-month project will include two practicum, one in both Ireland and Scotland, and a moderated web-based forum, with the intention of leading to further collaborative projects.

Assisted by the Royal Irish Academy and the Royal Society of Edinburgh, this project will support new methodologies for engaging diverse publics in their rural heritage as a means of increasing environmental awareness. The project recognises a developing spectrum of interest across the arts in the complex value of rurality.
