"Good News from Nowhere" is a three week exhibition and events programme at the Architecture Foundation in London. Myvillages and Grizedale Arts showcase some of their ongoing and current projects to explore and discuss the production and development of cultural spaces in rural communities.

The International Village Shop and a version of the Coniston Honest Shop will be open every day during the exhibition and offer a good range of shop classics.

Don't miss the Christmas Sale on Friday 20 December 2013!

From the Press Release:

" and Grizedale Arts have over the last decade proven their ambition to understand and act upon the particular conditions and character of rural social and public spaces, including implementing the concept of a particular rural art space through a number of initiatives, projects, conferences and publications. Both organisations have produced a significant number of projects and prototypes, which suggest new spatial and architectural constructs grounded in the their rural context.

With our relationship to the countryside and its future being a pressing a societal concern, the project will present a timely focus on rural development, advocating for the importance of traditional rural building types, while also developing new concepts that emerge from the socio-spatial, cultural and economic realties of rural communities today."

Each week of the project will be organised around one of the three thematic blocks: Farms (farming and land-use), Shops (local production and trade), and Halls (buildings and public use), all of which are relevant across both urban and rural realms."
