Metal is delighted to announce a call-out for its Readers in Residence programme, in response to the Radical Reading Room, 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. We are commissioning 6 Readers in Residence for local and national artists, activists, academics, writers, collectives and collaborators at any stage of their career. Each Reader will be awarded £1,000 fee, and a £1,000 programming pot. A further stipend for travel and accommodation will be made available for those living outside of the local area. A minimum of two live events will be programmed around the themes or topics of the books, as well as spending a minimum of 7 days in the Reading Room. When crafting ideas for events how can we engage new audiences with complex concepts and challenging ideas?

Eligibility: The offer is open to artists, activists, academics, writers, collectives and collaborators at any stage of their career within the UK.

What you get: Each reader will be awarded a fee of £1000, plus a £1000 programming pot, access to the Reading Room, Metal’s resources and the resources of Pluto Press and The Left Book Club.
