COMBINE, Rural life from an urban perspective.Firmly routed in Junction Arts new rural programme. This project will bring urban and rural communities together to explore and celebrate farming life. Young people from urban areas will be paired with a farming family to share stories and discover the reality of life on a farm.
Supported by professional artists, the participants will interpret this cross fertilisation of ideas creatively by using the latest technologies in image and sound to produce a unique visual product.
The project will conclude with a series of events, both on and off the farm, to showcase the work, and later this valuable resource will be available to the wider pubic in libraries, archives and online.
Junction Arts now works regionally so this project will take place on farms in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.
Phase one will begin in the autumn on a Derbyshire farm.
