Metal was founded in London in 2002 by Jude Kelly CBE, working with current Artistic Director and CEO, Colette Bailey since its inception. It has been active in Liverpool since 2004, in Southend-on-Sea since 2007 and in Peterborough since 2012.

We support artists from the UK and overseas, working in all disciplines, at all career levels. We create large- scale, participatory projects and curate exhibitions, festivals and events that respond to our immediate environment and involve people of all ages and from all walks of life.

In each place, we work from buildings of historic significance that we have transformed from empty 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.
