November 2008: Delta Arts Road Trip

Meeting at Wysing Arts Centre







In November 2008 Delta Arts members visited a series of arts organisations who run international artist residency programmes in rural locations, funded by an a-n Go-See Bursary. Our tour included Wysing Arts Centre, on a former farm in Cambridgeshire, Grizedale Arts above Conniston Water in Cumbria, and Cove Park on the west coast of Scotland. We met the directors of all three organisations and were interested to find out their different programmes, residencies, events and participatory projects. We found ‘rural’ to be a very contested term, but we found that all three organisations had made a serious cultural investment in their specific location and were testing new kinds of reltationships with artists and communities, both locally and internationally.
