Expression of Interest: Celebrating Jane Austen in Libraries, Time To Read

What is Time To Read?

Time To Read (TTR) is a unique partnership of 22 Library Authorities in North West England, working together to promote reading since 2002. The region covers Cumbria, Lancashire, Cheshire, all of Greater Manchester and Greater Merseyside.

Celebrating Jane Austen 2017

To acknowledge the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death in 2017, TTR plans create a package of artistic activity that will support the 22 member library authorities across the North West, providing a core offer with which they can form their own Jane Austen celebrations between July and December 2017.

What We Are Looking For

We are seeking artists, storytellers, writers, poets, creative organisations and performers who have an offer that can support the Jane Austen project in libraries who would like to be considered to be included in our artist directory.

EoI meeting our criteria will be put to a selection panel made up from representatives from TTR who will create a directory of artist to be circulated to each of the 22 member library authorities for them to purchase activity which suites their requirements.
