Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

Rural Arts Salon


As artists living in a rural context, we lack the opportunities of our urban counterparts to connect, 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. To listen to others ideas, and to share your own.

We're back in a rhythm of staying in, thinking, working alone, fears for our safety, unable to see those we love. But, we know how to do this now. It's not the calamity of last year, it is instead the new normal.

  • How has it affected our artistic practise?
  • How do we avoid a sense of stasis or stagnation and continue to explore the digital realm?
  • How do we continue to reach our audiences?


Anyone who would like to present a 3-5 minute introduction to their work or a specific project with the provocation 'Challenge Stagnation', please get in touch.


The Rural Arts Salon will be delivered online via Zoom. Please RSVP so that we can send you all the details you need to join this online gathering.

The first salon takes place on Wednesday 10 February, 4pm - 5.30pm.
