What is RURITAGE?

RURITAGE is a four-year EU-funded research project, initiated in June 2018, that aims to strengthen the role that culture and heritage plays in rural regeneration.

Co-ordinated by the University of Bologna, this pan-European project will share examples of good practice in six areas: Arts & Festivals; Migration; Resilience; Pilgrimage; Local Food and Landscape. With a €10m budget funded through the Horizon 2020 programme, RURITAGE intends to make a significant impact on rural regeneration initiatives and includes UNESCO among its 38 partners.  

Please visit the RURITAGE website for full information on all aspects of the project and partners.

Where does Take Art fit in?  

In January 2019 we were invited to become one of 38 partners in the project, profiling the impact and success of our touring scheme.

The project offers us all sorts of intriguing possibilities for the future, including the opportunity to learn from, and share our experiences with, many other European projects and partners.

Through RURITAGE, we will pilot a new initiative, learning from an innovative agro-food project in Puglia, Italy, to develop a Rural Heritage Hub that brings together local food and arts sectors to improve social cohesion in our area. We’re in the early stages of co-creating the hub with several other sector partners and will be launching it in November 2019.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 776465 (“RURITAGE”).
