Do you have live events too? Tell us a little about them…

We’ve launched books in a variety of interesting ways. Freedbook was our first ever book and a group of authors visited every library in the Books for London network during an epic six-hour tramp across the capital in 2012.

When we launched the Cambridge Blue Plaque Walk map, as part of the Art Language Location Festival, we made a public appeal on BBC radio for everyday heroes and made our very own Blue Plaques in magnetic form. We walked the route along the map and posted our little plaques along the way!

Other events have included:

  • the book launch for A Life of Endings in the Gordon Museum of Pathology, with live poetry and music, and watched over by an audience of 8,000 specimens in glass jars;
  • the Resilience chapbook, launched on International Nurses Day;
  • and our Relationship Map exhibited at Middlesex University during Mental Health Awareness Week.

Over these weeks just now we're launching all five of our Confronting Rape Culture chapbooks at the Museum of Futures during a contemporary art exhibition showing work from over forty international artists. The event includes film, performance, workshops, writing, painting, sculpture and installation, intended to start a broad and in-depth conversation. 

Thanks, Alban, for this extraordinary overview. And all the very best with all of it!
