We exist to share the stories and experiences of creatives with past and/or current rural ties, and it's potential to influence their practice.

We are able to do this work because of volunteers, sponsors, and donations.

Our goal is to connect artists who have rural ties to create a place to exchange ideas, resources, and moral support regardless of geographic location or access of metropolitan areas. We aim to support and further development of creative spaces, people, and organizations within rural locations.

Rural doesn't need to be a central focus of the member's work, but rather a way to express understanding of multifaceted influences and their results.

We give back to the communities we came from.
