Metal is an artistic laboratory championing the need for investment in
artistic innovation in the UK, and providing practical support to practising artists.
Founded in London in 2002 by Jude Kelly OBE., Metal has been active in Liverpool since 2004, in Southend-on-Sea since 2007 and in Peterborough since 2012.
In each place, Metal works from buildings of historic significance that
we have transformed from empty or derelict spaces into vibrant cultural community hubs. From these bases, we work to provide the catalyst that can transform the potential of people and places through great art and inspiring ideas
