Radically Rural, a two-day summit held for the first time in 2018 — and was host to 544 professionals from 21 states — will be held this year on September 19 and 20, 2019, in Keene, NH.
In addition to its initial roster of five tracks — Arts & Culture, Journalism, Entrepreneurship, Main Street and Working Lands — this year’s summit will include a sixth track, Renewable Energy.
Each program track in this year’s summit will offer four individual sessions with topics ranging from Supporting Stage 2 Business, Solutions Journalism, and Building an Arts Enclave, to The Experienced Economy, Main Street First Impressions, Moving Toward 100 Percent Renewable Energy, and Creative Financing for Farmers and Food Producers.
The 2nd annual “PitchFork Challenge” will also be held during the Radically Rural summit, and will offer a $10,000 cash prize to the winning business pitch.
Radically Rural connects creative and innovative thinkers and doers with small towns and rural communities. Meet experts from around the country, share your knowledge, and discover ideas you can take home and put into action!
