October 19 & 20, 2021

Rural Assembly Everywhere is a virtual festival for the curious and the critical, the listeners and the connectors. It’s geared toward rural allies, neighbors, and admirers. The festival debuted in October 2020 as the first all-virtual conference of The Rural Assembly. 

This October 19 & 20, we’re excited to bring you a special edition of this virtual event: Rural Women Everywhere, a two-day event celebrating the voices, contributions, and leadership of women across the countryside. We’ll examine the ways rural and Native women are participating in the work of building more welcoming and inclusive communities. Programming will feature keynotes, roundtable conversations, and breakout sessions spotlighting women’s experiences and reflections. We’ll hear from women journalists, organizers and activists, indigenous leaders, artists and poets, lawyers and professors, faith leaders, and young women, who are building bridges and crossing borders to connect us to one another and the places we call home.

Tell us about your traditions

As we celebrate the contributions of rural and native women across the country, we want to hear from you about your family and cultural traditions. We all know that traditions establish the foundation for our values, they are a way to pass on our history, and help us bond with each other in our communities.
So we ask;
What traditions are you practicing and helping to perpetuate?
Why is it important you?
How is your sense of identity and belonging tied to those traditions?
