The Littoral Arts Trust has been working with the Rural Cultural Forum to develop a cultural strategy for rural communities and artists in rural areas.

Since 2000 LITTORAL Arts has been working on a series of research projects aimed at surfacing a coordinated arts and cultural strategy for rural communities in England.

The basis of this work was a 3 year research programme funded by Arts Council England, 2000-3, which resulted in the 'Investing in Rural Creativity - New Rural Arts Strategy' report, which was presented to the Arts Council in October 2003.

One of the outcomes of this report was a recommendation for the setting up of a Rural Cultural Forum for England, and a Rural Cultural Summit in May 2006, to take these ideas further.
