Onderwerp: FYI: Rural Art Space Symposium next Wednesday


A one day symposium as part of Why We Left The Village and Came Back
Wed 17 Jan 2007, 10.00 to 17.00, Old Market Hall, Shrewsbury, Shropshire

Why We Left the Village and Came Back is a two month programme of displays,
films and events curated by the artist initiative myvillages.org and
Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery. The project is showcasing and
demonstrating a variety of current art practices that specifically address
the rural environment, both as a social and physical space and as a
political and historical context.

The symposium will look at current art and curatorial practice within a
rural context and explore the different spaces and approaches associated
with it. The day is split in two parts: A morning session with presentations
around the current debate on cultural regeneration, both urban and rural,
and a critical reflection on the role of art practices and curation within
regeneration schemes. The afternoon is organised in workshops with
presentations by a wide variety of practitioners, offering the opportunity
for focused group discussions.
There will also be an opportunity to analyse what the project has so far
achieved in Shropshire and to propose new curatorial strategies for the
rural art space in the county, which may be developed through the mediamaker
Rurality programme.

The symposium is a partnership venture between myvillages.org, Shrewsbury
Museum and Art Gallery and the School of Art and Design, University of

There are only very few places left for the day. If you would like to
