Utopolis Manchester is a visionary site-specific work that uses intricate tapestries of sound and voices to transform our view of the city. Gathering in dozens of small groups at multiple locations, we’ll head out to explore the people and places that shape Manchester’s daily life – and discover the many ways in which citizens build communities, society and democracy.
As our assembly reaches critical mass, a question emerges. Can a group of disparate individuals come together to forge a utopian state? And how large can this system grow before it falls apart?

Utopolis Manchester takes place in multiple locations around the city. Parts of the event take place outdoors and involve travel by foot or other means. For access queries, call 0161 817 4547 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you live, work or run a space in the city centre you could become a host for Utopolis Manchester. Find out more on our Get Involved page, or email email@example.com
