The Rural Forum (2017) and Nyland (2018) conferences aimed at exploring the potential of art in relation to the future development of the rural areas of Europe. Participants were local citizens, local farmers and craftsmen, bankers, EU politicians and local politicians, experts of various kinds, scientists, theater people and artists who exchanged knowledge and experience of working in rural areas.

The conference Rural Forum took place on the medieval castle Østergaard situated close to a modern pig production a kilometer outside Aasted. Nyland Forum was held at the Marienlyst Production College in Skive.
