The discussion will take place within the surroundings of resident artists DARP’s exhibition, whose work will provoke ways in which artist-led spaces can forge new ways of living and working collaboratively, with each other and with their surrounding landscapes.
Led by Artcore Gallery, Rural Imaginaries aims to discuss creative possibilities for nature-based urban regeneration within Derby, sustainable living and community growth.
Panellists: DARP (Derbyshire Artist Residency Programme), Paula McCloskey (Uni of Derby), Rebecca Beinart (Primary), Neville Portas (Down to Earth), Ivan Smith (Artist) and Olivia Penrose-Punnett (Haarlem).
