Our next seminar: Art, rural, research

The last of the Centre for Rural Economy’s new seminar series looks at art in the countryside.

The last of the Centre for Rural Economy’s new seminar series will take place on Tuesday 11th June 2019, where Dr Menelaos Gkartzios will discuss several questions, including:

  • what is the experience of art in the countryside?
  • what does art ‘do’?
  • how can we use artistic practice in interdisciplinary research designs? 

The seminar will explore the above, drawing on a collaborative artist residency programme co-organised by the Centre for Rural Economy and Berwick Visual Arts. The residency invited an artist to respond to a highly contentious topic in rural England: housing development. The presentation will also introduce a new research project at Newcastle University, involving art stakeholders in the region and in Japan.

Join us at 17.30 in the Clement Stephenson Lecture Theatre (Agriculture Building), for what will be an evening of lively discussion.
