From the Field: Imagining the Future of Rural Regeneration
From the Field is Springboard’s virtual conversation series that brings together artists who are reimagining the future of rural America. These artist-to-artist talks will explore rural-specific topics such as COVID response and recovery, equity and justice, food systems and agriculture, and more, through the lens of rural artists, culture bearers and makers. This series is an extension of Springboard for the Arts’ Rural Arts and Culture Summit, which is a biennial gathering of rural artists and practitioners.
From the Field: Imagining the Future of Rural Regeneration is a conversation with three rural creative leaders in New London, Minnesota who are navigating the intersections of community stewardship and transformation in the wake of the pandemic, generational shifts in leadership and changes in economic and demographic trends.
Meet Bethany Lacktorin (artist, musician, Chair of the New London Arts Alliance and Director of New London Little Theatre), and Kristin Allen (artist and designer at Greenwater Garage) for a glimpse into daily life in New London, strategies for collaboration, and their hopes for this small town’s future.
