Reader’s Union

The pandemic Covid-19 has revealed so much. Copy Press Reader’s Union has found itself asking the very question with which it began: What are the possibility and limitations today for ‘coming together’? In the New Year 2020 a message was circulated—‘become fireflies and form again a community of flashes shinning out, of dances in spite of all, of thoughts to transmit’. In the months that have followed this message has gathered momentum to become, for a foreseeable future, the calling of Copy Press Reader’s Union.
