A virtual extension of the Rural Arts and Culture Summit, Springboard's From the Field: Conversations on the Future by Rural Artists is a series of virtual meet ups and workshops connecting rural artists and their communities around responses to the COVID crisis, rural anti-racism efforts, and the ongoing role of arts and culture in re-imagining the future of rural communities. Programming has paused for the summer and will resume in September 2021. To view an archive of previous convenings, visit our youtube playlist.
