Collaborators wanted

Events / Exhibitions / Publishing about 20th century architecture in Manchester

Are you a writer, 'zine-ster, historian, researcher or a whizz with social media? Are you a designer, artist, illustrator or photographer? Are you a budding publicist or project manager? Or are you an existing community or history group with an interest in 20th Century Manchester architecture?

Would you like to collaborate, contribute and help deliver events / exhibitions / publications about 20th Century / Modernist Manchester? ( that's Greater Manchester by the way.) Do you have an idea for a project or publication that want to develop or lead?

Then get in touch! The Modernist Society is a voluntary based, creative collaborative project that needs you to join in and make things happen. 

Events and activitites could include a talk or a film screening, a walking tour or an exhibition. Publications could range from a pamphlet or map to a book. Projects could be about individual buildings or places; types of building or more generally about the architecture and associated art and design of the period (that's roughly 1918 - 2000, though we're particularly keen on the the post-war period).

Here at the Modernist Society we have always been fond of a printed publication, from our early Alphabet City through to Toastrack and Sacred Suburbs, not to mention our quarterly Magazine - The Modernist.

Other recent projects have included exhibitions such as Galt, Garland and Games and tours such as GM10.

All our collaborations are voluntary but if there are costs involved we can investigate how and whether the project idea can be funded

So, if you have an idea and want to make it real, then get in touch by emailing Jack Hale or Eddy Rhead at info[at]

Thanking you!

The Modernists
