Portraits of Rural Wisconsin
A Wisconsin Public Television Documentary
Program was premiered at the Reception

Over the past two years Wisconsin Rural Partners (WRP) has been pleased to assist the Purple River Project at Marquette University.  The Purple River Project has been working with Wisconsin Public Television (WPT) on this documentary titled Portraits of Rural Wisconsin. 

 

Portraits of Rural Wisconsin is a series of interviews with folks from one area of the state’s dairy communities and, in their own words, documents life in rural Wisconsin today.  Students from the Purple River Project actually interviewed attendees at the 2017 and 2018 Summits for this program.
