Happening in the New Forest, online and at Lower Hewood Farm (Dorset), Rural Facets is a project intended as a forum for artists who identify with the / as rural. It is intended to forge new connections, create a forum of support and celebrate contemporary rural relevancies, criticality and artistic practice. To create a community of sharing and caring. Alongside the gatherings we will co-create and distribute a Rural Facets poster edition – a mapping of our creative ruralities, as an act of advocacy for rural practice and provision, a raising of artist voices that often are isolated.
