Artist Research Commission - Brexit: Implications for the rural north of England

Brexit is a ‘once in a generation’ event which will have a long-lasting impact on all parts of the UK; however, the impact on rural areas is expected to be particularly significant.  The recently published report by Newcastle University’ Centre for Rural Economy ‘Brexit: Implications for the rural north of England’ uses rural Northumberland as a case study for the potential impact of Brexit upon the rural north of England.

We wish to use this research as the basis for an artist to research, document and respond to the initial impact of this momentous occasion in the United Kingdom’s history upon communities in rural Northumberland.
