RURALities

April - July 2021, online and in partner venues

RURALities is a series of four digital commissions that investigate different perspectives on rural experiences. From an open call, artists Lucy Wright, Craig David-Parr, Dan Turner and Martha Kelsey were selected for their commitment to investigating the rural within their practices, the quality of their ideas and their critical engagement with RURALities, an ever-growing digital world and its relationship to the rural.

Produced in partnership with Birmingham’s Vivid Projects, RURALities is Meadow Arts first digital commissioning programme. As a rurally based arts charity, Meadow Arts has been exploring the complexities of our cultural, social, and environmental relationship to ideas of place and the landscape for almost two decades.

Artists were invited to submit proposals for new digital works that respond to rural narratives and support rural practices within Shropshire, Herefordshire, and Worcestershire. The finished work is expected to amplify rural understanding and visibility through an interconnected exhibition series that will be showcased online, as well as in partner venues.

Digital art specialists Vivid Projects are providing the artists with mentoring and support throughout the digital creative process, including 1-2-1 sessions that explore their work in progress.
