‘ENTWINED Online Assemblage’ celebrates the end of the two-year, multi-partner programme ENTWINED:Rural.Land.Lives.Art. The project is organised by VARC (Visual Arts in Rural Communities). It comprises six mixed-length residencies and associated artist projects. Each artist’s practice explored different aspects of what makes a ‘place’, revealing the interconnectedness of rural land and rural lives. Invited speakers include artists and academics that are concerned with rurality and/or what makes ‘place’.
The conference videos seek to interrogate the interconnectedness of rural land and lives, and includes contributions by environmental artist-researchers somewhere-nowhere and artist Laura Harrington.
