Shared Reading with The Reader
28 Oct, 2pm
Blue Room Foyer, Level 1
Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre
Join The Reader for a shared reading experience and explore stories and poems which have had a powerful impact on readers living in secure environments. These half-hour workshops will be held in this year’s Koestler exhibition, Inside: art by offenders, secure patients and detainees, curated by Antony Gormley.
Since 2008, The Reader has pioneered the use of shared reading to improve well-being, reduce social isolation and build stronger communities across the UK and beyond. They work to inspire and support people to read great literature aloud together – a simple idea that changes lives. They read with people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds in libraries, community centres, schools, hospitals, recovery centres, and in prisons and probation centres.
