Writer, Metro Community Takeover, Nexus
Deadline: Fri 27 Mar 2020
Nexus is a public body which runs the Tyne and Wear Metro for the combined authorities of North East England. We have a proud tradition in public arts since 1980. We are seeking to appoint a Creative Practitioner who specialises in creative writing as part of Metro Community Takeover: Connecting Communities programme.

They will be working closely with an Illustrator to create a Graphic Novel. They will be running sessions to collect stories which will be turned into a publication.

Metro turns 40 in 2020; it carries 36 million passengers a year and is part of everyday life in Tyne and Wear. We will be celebrating this anniversary through a year-long programme to explore three key themes – Metro’s Heritage, its place in today’s Communities and its Future.

More than £1 million of activity by Nexus will include physical and online history projects, open days, a new family travel offer, industry/career events to inspire young people, and a travelling showcase for our new train fleet.

This Metro Community Takeover forms part of the ‘community’ strand of the work.
