The Rural Media Company is an award winning production, education and development charity that uses creative and digital arts as a catalyst for community engagement and social change.
Work with us.
We innovate and create ground breaking digital projects and productions, creatively connecting and engaging people of all ages and abilities in order to share their stories, enrich their lives and to make themselves heard.
We can work with you to reach and engage new audiences and communicate your message.
Our first dip into the RMC archive is back to 2008 and a Wellcome Trust funded project called Teenology.
Teenology was a participative multi-media digital project for young people, exploring the science of adolescence and the reasons behind some of the physical, emotional and behavioural changes we experience as teenagers.
Life Loves to Change is a new digital artwork consisting of a new poem and series of digital films and photographs that depict life in a rural market town and the surrounding area in the 21st century.
The project created 32 sonnets, recorded and recited by members of the community; 32 films to accompany each sonnet; 32 postcards with portraits of people and places; installed in 16 businesses across the town where QR and ebook download points were positioned.
The Rural Media Company is 21 years old this year!
Over the last 21 years we have shared our work with millions of people across the globe and worked with many thousands to help create it.
During the year we will dip into the archive and share some hidden gems, as we build up to a big 21st birthday celebration.
