Liberty Rural Learning Cooperative
The Liberty Rural Learning Cooperative was founded to preserve and support the unique qualities found in rural education, arts and culture. The group implements projects based on innovative community engagement practices that can build alternative and effective modes of communication for diverse populations and celebrates the rich cultural assets found in rural communities.
In addition to artist-in-residence workshops with youth, the group facilitates the Applied Rural Arts Program in which creative-based classes are offered to high school students in Yuma County. The goal of these courses is to re-imagine our hometowns as laboratories, a place where farmers become our teachers and rural main streets become our classrooms.
