The Rural Assembly explores the cultural heritage of the Mississippi Delta at Rural Generation
The Rural Assembly joined a vibrant group of partners at the Rural Generation Summit in Jackson, Miss issippi last week for conversations and discussions on "the rural dimensions of equity and social justice in the arts and culture landscape." The Summit included a trip to Utica Mississippi, home of Sipp Culture ; an afternoon in Indianola with a visit to the BB King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center ; and closed with a morning at Tougaloo College , a historically black college outside of Jackson, MS. The conference ended with a powerful panel on "closing the circle" including our own Whitney Kimball Coe with Jamie Bennett of ArtPlace America , Jennifer Hughes of the National Endowment for the Arts , Lori Pourier of First Peoples Fund , and Pam Breaux of the National Assembly of State Art Agencies . Thank you all for an inspiring few days!

Rethinking Rural Launches Crowdfunding Campaign

Rethinking Rural , a partner of the Rural Assembly, is working to create and support "a network of engaged rural millennials dedicated to working together on a national scale to protect landscapes, diversify economies, and strengthen evolving communities." They recently announced their crowdfunding campaign "to raise funds that will help us expand our network, put on three face to face gatherings, and continue supporting young leaders fighting the hard fight in rural communities across America. We’re planning to raise $40,000 that will help us pay for upcoming expenses and leverage other funds as we move forward to making a big difference in small places all over the country."

"Rethinking Rural is about making sure there is something for this generation and the next, and the next, to move back to. And that rural America is a thriving, culturally diverse, healthy place for people to set roots." -Madeline Moore, co-founder of Rethinking Rural.
