Event: For the People: The democratisation of modernist design

  • 27 Sep 2019

For The People event poster The Modernist Society have invited a range of speakers, from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines, for a day long series of talks looking at how modernist design has found its way into our every day lives. From monumental concrete public sculpture through to tea spoons, from entire new towns down to litter bins, the twentieth century saw modernism go from an obscure and elitist theoretical practise into being an aspect of almost all our lives.

For The People: The democratisation of modernist design takes place on Saturday 9th November at LEAF in Manchester and has been supported by a Paul Mellon Centre Event Support Grant.
