This event, a symposium, will explore the representation of landscape from farming to philosophy. The day will aim to further thinking around the intersection between art, real places and research and provide an arena for specialists to explore and challenge ideas and approaches to Rurality.

The day will offer an opportunity to extend and inform current research and practice alongside developing new networks. What is Rural? aims to deepen levels of engagement and understanding in ethical, aesthetic, critical, funding, environmental and philosophical issues evident in rural spaces and related discourses.

Artists, art and art practice will become the prompt that opens up a richer dialogue, encourages sharing and makes available specialist ideas to a wider public.

The wide range of speakers have been linked to create a dynamic environment that will encourage audience involvement and allow for 3-way debate and discussion.

This event coincides with exhibitions by Kate Genever, Adam O'Meara and Nick May.
