Registration is NOW OPEN for the RURAL ARTS AND CULTURE SUMMIT that will be happening in Morris, Minnesota June 2-4, 2015.

“From the Ground Up: Cultivating Creative People and Places”

The summit this year will highlight the important role of art and culture in shaping the rural narrative.  It will explore models that support individual artists and their careers, communities that incorporate arts and culture into the development strategies.

The 2015 Rural Arts and Culture Summit will gather artists, art organizations, rural-centric organizations, and community and economic development leaders to learn about creative people and places that have built their stories “from the ground up”. People from across the state and country will gather to celebrate the imaginative and creative thinking that has helped to create vibrant small town cultures.
