Visual Arts in Rural Communities

Visual Arts in Rural Communities is based at Highgreen, Tarset in a remote part of rural Northumberland.  VARC funds and manages an on-going programme of artist residencies.  Through the residencies it offers opportunities to artists to develop new work in response to the remote rural landscape and its community and to offer benefit to the community and visiting groups in engagement with art and artists, through contact and creative activity, exhibitions and events.
