Rural Arts Salon this Thursday

Two local rural touring initiatives are collaborating to create an event for local artists.

Creatives from the Marches region are invited to join the Rural Arts Salon this Thursday 17th September. Arts Alive are co-hosting the virtual arts meeting with rural theatre, Pentabus, to bring together arts professionals to discuss ‘Navigating Change & Going Live.’

The organisers said, “Artists living in rural areas lack the opportunities of our urban counterparts to connect, and to share ideas, plans and dreams. The Rural Arts Salon is a chance to meet arts professionals working across Shropshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Mid-Wales and listen to each other’s ideas.

“We will be discussing how to navigate this new era, and how to get back to work in a safe way. We would also like to generate some ideas on creating responsive and adaptive art that reflects the current times we are living through.”

If you are interested in joining the discussion, which will take place on Zoom, email [email protected]  or [email protected] to book a place. The session will take place from 4pm-5:30pm on the 17th September 2020.
