Conversation: Rural-Urban Continuum

In a divisive election year that’s posed one challenge after another, it’s more important than ever for residents of rural and urban places to discover common ground.

To that purpose, LVN is collaborating with Wormfarm Institute, an arts organization based in rural Sauk County, and Rural Urban FLOW, a network of cultural and agricultural producers in Milwaukee and Sauk County, to facilitate conversations along the rural-urban continuum.

We invite people from all walks of life to participate in these free, 90-minute conversations that make space for individuals from diverse geographies to meet, share stories, and listen.

This is Part 2 of an initiative started in the spring, wherein rural and urban dwellers gathered for a series of Zoom conversations about food, farming, and the land in the lead-up to the 2020 Farm/Art DTour (Sept 26-Oct 4).

The rural-urban conversation script has been developed by Rural Urban FLOW partners to create the possibility of continued flow and dialogue across the state of Wisconsin. All individuals with Wisconsin connections are invited to join.

Participants may join stand-alone conversations and/or breakout conversations happening after special events organized by Rural Urban Flow partners. Registration links below:
