Radically Rural 2019
September 19 @ 7:30 am - September 20 @ 5:00 pm
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.
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.
