“Belonging”, the film, has been accepted to the 18th Annual Nevada City Film Festival, taking place on September 7-14, 2018.

BELONGING is about our vulnerable mountain home and the people who tend it, love it and depend on it. During Year One, Artist-in-Residence Ruth Chase directed a short film and community exhibition, together with a year’s worth of public art making workshops and dialogue.

During Year Two of Belonging, “I AM HERE” will explore how women find and maintain their sense of belonging in our changing rural landscape, culminating in an interactive public installation in downtown Nevada City. I AM HERE is, ultimately, a community conversation – a way to connect, explore and empower.

BELONGING was an initiative of Nevada County Art Council led by Artist Ruth Chase, generously funded in part by California Arts Council through its Artists in Communities Program.
