The Rural Arts Network Scotland community connects through knowledge exchange events, with three having taken place since 2021. While the first event took place online as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, events 2 and 3 took place in person with members of the group hosting the rest of the network. In person events and spending ‘intense and valuable’ time together are an important part of developing relationships and building a Community of Practice.
