Arts & Festivals. Drivers for Rural Regeneration
Several RURITAGE partners will demonstrate the contribution that culture can make in the regeneration activities of rural regions
The contribution that culture can make in regeneration activities can be applied in its own way to rural areas. A vibrant arts and festivals programme, within a rural context, is an opportunity for rural communities to express their unique identity and to express their self-confidence. The arts and festivals provide employment opportunities, ar related to creative industries which are a major economic driver and can contribute to green tourism.
During this webinar, several RURITAGE partners will share their arts and festival experiences. Speakers from Take Art will introduce the rural touring concept which shows how involving rural communities in the promotion and hosting of professional arts touring into village halls help to invigorate local communities by bringing them together within a cultural context.
