Private Views Made Public and Rural Voices – from Depmore to Shocklach

2011- 2013

 

PROJECT OVERVIEW

 

Drawing on twelve women from diverse social, cultural and economic backgrounds living in rural Cheshire the project illuminates their viewpoints on personal isolation, financial and economic pressures, the impact of foot and mouth disease and other matters.

 

It is intended through the film portraits and sound projections to connect to rural communities at venues throughout Cheshire and beyond.

 

This is a lifelong learning project for rural communities, addressing issues of marginalised groups and the role of contemporary arts practice.
