#RADISH (COVID-19 response)

In response to Coronavirus, Rural Arts is launching RADISH - Rural Arts Daily Inspiration while Staying at Home.

It's our way - while our in-person services are suspended - to support people to feel connected and creative during this difficult and worrying time.

We're going to be sharing or running something creative every weekday between Monday 23rd March until we're able to reopen.

Chief Executive Max May says:

“On Monday 16th March 2020, following updated Government guidance on social distancing, we made the difficult decision to suspend all usual Rural Arts’ activity. We took Tuesday to do emergency planning – vital as a small charity – and by Wednesday were planning how we could support our communities, both locally and digitally. We are excited today to launch our plans to keep everyone we can safe, healthy and happy during these unprecedented times.”

“We have to do what we can. It’s not safe currently to meet in person – for our customers or our staff – so we’ve had to think: what can we do from home – from our bedrooms and living rooms – to try and help?”, says Max May.

The charity, which hosts over 600 events and activities a year all across North Yorkshire, is asking patrons with bookings that are currently postponed to consider turning them into donations to help keep Rural Arts running during this unprecedented time. One-off donations can be made and Gift Vouchers for future Rural Arts’ activity can be bought via their website.
