Visual Arts in Rural Communities Seminar
CVAC in partnership with St Cuthbert's Society, Durham University, warmly invites you to a discussion between Cynthia Morrison-Bell and Alix Collingwood-Swinburn on Tuesday 9th March 4-5pm. This event is open to all.
Cynthia is a curator and Director of Art Circuit Touring Exhibitions, who has been a trustee of VARC since 2013. Visual Arts in Rural Communities is based at Highgreen, Tarset, Northumberland. VARC funds and manages an on-going programme of twelve-month residencies for visual artists and projects with special schools. Through the residencies it aims to offer opportunities to artists to develop new work in response to the remote rural landscape and its community and to offer benefit to the community and visiting groups in engagement with art and artists, through contact and creative activity. It also aims to benefit young people with special needs, particularly those with autism spectrum condition, through creative projects with artists.
