Radical Read

Radical Read

Radical Read is a history, literature and performance project with young people, in Manchester. Conceived by Read Manchester, this is a collaborative project between Manchester City Council and Manchester Histories.

The aim of Radical Read is to increase young people’s (14-18-year olds) understanding of their democratic rights through the reading of books and other written materials that celebrate young people’s engagement in peaceful protest and change over the last 200 years. It forms part of the Read Manchester campaign and aims to promote the enjoyment of reading.
