Learn. Share. Network. Enjoy.
Join us in Keene, NH on September 27 & 28 – we promise you will meet new and interesting people, immerse yourself in engaging and memorable sessions, and enjoy great local food and entertainment — all wrapped up in an amazing small New England town experience. Autumn in New England is our most colorful and vibrant time!
We know you will leave Radically Rural overflowing with great ideas, new friends, and filled with inspiration to make a difference in your community.
We understand that some folks are physically unable to make the trip, which is why we will be making recordings for most sessions available after.
Arts and Culture
The Arts are an expression of our cultural roots, our reality today and our understanding of what may happen tomorrow, and, as such, are vital to the health of communities. The importance of adequate funding and that these funds represent the diaspora of the individuals in these communities and beyond feeds our sense of belonging, understanding and social development. The arts can also be an intricate part of economic development. A full spectrum of emotions and socio-economic benefits are in the hands of our painters, actors, museum curators, arts educators and more.
Join us at Radically Rural as we engage community leaders and stakeholders to build through the arts an increased community understanding and a strong sense of place.
