Send us your video! “Rural is…”

We want to hear from you! At the Rural Assembly, we know that rural means something a little different for every person and place. What does rural mean to you? 

Send us a short 30-second video of yourself responding to the prompt “Rural is…” and we may feature it in Rural Assembly Everywhere this October. 

Here are some basic guidelines for recording yourself:
– Have the phone in horizontal position. If you’re recording off of a computer this is not an issue. 
– You can do a selfie, but it may be easier to have someone hold the phone for you. 
– The shot should be your head and shoulders.
– Try to shoot it outdoors. 
– Understand where the light is coming from. If there is sun, don’t have it directly behind you.
– Try to pick a quiet location.

VIDEO: Eliza Blue performs, shares a look inside her life on the prairie ​

Eliza Blue is a shepherd, writer, and folk singer who lives on a ranch in South Dakota with her husband and two children. The ranch has been in her husband’s family for five generations, but Eliza took a more circuitous route to South Dakota, growing up and living in cities before what she thought was a sabbatical from city life became a life on the prairie. At Rural Assembly Everywhere, Eliza shared both a performance and a glimpse into her favorite place.
