Satellite Wales 2018
Fields of Vision - Other voices, rural places, global stories
The world’s population is increasingly living in cities and this focus on the urban centres is also reflected in the arts sector. But what’s happening beyond the metropolis? What does it mean to be an artist in a rural context? What models of practice are there, working with existing culture, connecting communities and re-exploring traditions? Come and join us in Llandudno, north Wales, on a journey of discovery to engage with these themes and share experiences, and to explore the countryside and connect with communities of Wales.
Wales will be hosting an IETM event for the second time. On this occasion, we will be deepening some of the conversations started in Brussels and Porto around the theme of working outside of the big centres and in rural areas. A subject which resonates strongly with Wales considering we only have 2 official cities, the rest being considered rural; a bilingual country full of contrasts mixing stunning landscapes, coast line and wilderness, post industrial areas, strong farming communities and a vibrant art scene.
During this encounter we will be exploring the plurality of the concepts of rural, identity, territory, and culture, talk around case studies of inspiring and ground breaking projects, bring together people from different perspectives such as arts, heritage, conservation, research, economics.
Attendance to the meeting is by application only. If you would like to join it, send in your application before 29 July.
