Metal is excited to annouce our Reader in Residence call out.
The Reader In Residence programme is in response to the Radical Reading Room which is a new collaborative project opening up local public spaces and providing a wealth of educational tools which will be a catalyst for creative thinkers and critical minds. Starting with boxes of new, boundary-pushing books, organisations from Leeds, Sheffield, Cardiff, Peterborough and Newcastle/Gateshead have come together to create and generate spaces of positive dissent, backed up by the independent publisher Pluto Press and the Left Book Club.
The Peterborough Radical Reading Room is being hosted at Chauffeurs Cottage, and we have commissioned six Readers in Residence opportunities for local and national artists, activists, academics, writers, collectives and collaborators at any stage of their career. As part of the residency, the Readers in Residence must programme at least 2 in-person events to engage new audiences with complex concepts and challenging ideas presented by the books. Each successful applicant will be awarded a £1,000 fee and a £1,000 programming pot, with an extra stipend available for travel and accommodation for those based outside of Peterborough.
The closing date is 5pm Wednesday 29th September. You can read the full brief here
