A national two-day summit for shaping and sharing ideas that support vibrant rural communities.
Radically Rural™ is an annual two-day summit that brings together hundreds of people who are passionate about creating vibrant, robust rural communities and are eager to learn, connect and lead the charge!
This summit offers six engaging program tracks featuring four sessions in each track. Attendees are encouraged to attend sessions in different tracks. Tracks for 2019 are: Arts & Culture, Entrepreneurship, Journalism, Main Street, Renewable Energy, and Working Lands.
Visit our website to learn more about each track and their four exclusive sessions!
Broad shifts in demographics, communications, technology, economic development, and personal values are generating creative responses from innovative thinkers, change-makers, entrepreneurs, and community-builders who love their towns and know their advantages. Come and learn what they are doing. Radically Rural will feature five program tracks and three programs per track over the course of two days, as well as keynote opening and closing speeches, and our popular CONNECT event Thursday night.
The venue radiates rural and converts a small town into a conference center. Rather than a windowless, over-air conditioned ball room, attendees will pass coffee houses, restaurants, shops and meeting places to find our attractive, inviting event venues sprinkled conveniently throughout a small downtown district, which includes a college campus. It’s a creative framework for substantive, high-energy learning, discussing and sharing — mixed with great local food, networking, and regional art and music.
We Invite You to Join Us and Launch a Rural Renaissance!
