The Rural Artist ResidenciesÂ has kicked off! Dorset, Uk
Cape Farewell is creating a series of Rural Artist Residencies. Artists will be invited on to the Rural Residencies programme to engage diverse, wide-reaching audiences with the local narratives of Sydling St. Nicholas in Dorset.Â The idea is to involve the local community, encouraging neighbours and villagers to hold a voluntary stake in the farmâ€™s future.
Artists will interrogate the inspirational resilience and social ties that form when local communities embrace heritage, sustainability, and innovation. So far, Cape Farewell has established relationships with three farmers around Sydling St. Nicholas :Â Manor Farm, Huish Farm, and Dollens Farm.Â They have strong community ties, commit to good stewardship of the natural environment, and employ varied practice methods, which they openly invite the public to explore.Â For the first residency, Chris Drury has been Â invited to develop a personal response to the working life sustained by the valley, as a natural, cultural and community habitat.
