What is the Rural Arts Happy Hour?
Would you like to be more connected to rural arts-makers across the country?

The Rural Arts and Culture Working Group of the National Rural Assembly will launch a series of virtual conversations throughout 2014 that will bring together rural artists, leaders, practitioners, funders, and other rural advocates, to talk about what’s happening in the rural arts, sample some models, and encourage more camaraderie among practitioners. 

This is an opportunity to make new friends and build new collaborations through a virtual meeting space that will convene bi-monthly until we’ve exhausted ourselves, our ideas, and the patience of our new friends.

In rural places and small towns there is growing understanding that the role of the arts cannot be undervalued or underutilized as we make plans for the future.  Our economies depend upon creative thinkers and solutions.  Our quality of life hinges upon our ability to be inclusive, to adapt, and to draw upon all of our assets.

The arts are a galvanizing force, and folks working for the arts are stronger when they are connected.

Whether you’re an artist, a community leader, a cultural worker, or just interested in highlighting the work of the rural arts, join the Rural Arts Happy Hour.  And BYOB.

How to REGISTER:  

We'll be using Google Hangouts as our platform for these conversations, so, send an email to whitney.crs@gmail.com, and she'll add you to the Rural Arts Happy Hour Circle.  

Be near your computer at 4pm Eastern and accept the invitation to join our Happy Hour.
