For the People: the democratisation of modernist design

Saturday 09 November 2019 - Leaf, 113-115 Portland Street, Manchester, M1 6DW

Join The Modernist Society for a day of talks looking at how modernist design has found its way into our everyday lives. From monumental concrete public sculpture through to teaspoons, from entire new towns down to litter bins, the twentieth century saw modernism go from an obscure and elitist theoretical practice into being a part of almost all our lives.

Where Light Falls

Thursday 14 to Saturday 16 November 2019 - Coventry Cathedral

Join us for a spectacular installation of light, history and poetry using Coventry Cathedral as a canvas to tell a tale of destruction, recovery and resilience: from the medieval period through the destruction of the old cathedral during the Blitz, finishing with peace, reconciliation and the building of a modern city.

The event is free.
