Join in

On a given date, in a given month, the Modernist Society will declare CAMPUS DAY – a day of celebration and activites – and unilaterally proclaim and define the former UMIST campus as Manchester’s first and only post-war Conservation Area in keeping with its unique Architectural, Scientific and Cultural significance.
In line with the initial premise of the ‘uninvited artist-in-residence’ the celebratory events will play with ideas around conviviality, protest and social activism with the artists assuming this tone to evade capture, eviction and create a trail of documentary evidence (both ephemeral and material) in place of the traditional blue plaque. Back the project and you will be invited to take part in this Celebration Day and you will receive your Special Invitation as the day draws closer.

*Although this project has now taken place – you can still support the activities of the Manchester Modernist Society here
