About this Event

Meet the Neighbours: The Weekend

How do we live together amid the chaos of urban change?

Curated by Quarantine & Florian Malzacher

Twenty years ago, a few thousand people lived in Manchester City Centre. Today, there are more than 65,000 of us – and like the cranes, it keeps going up. Thriving, growing, dismantling, reshuffling, Manchester is a prime example of today’s fast-changing cities.

As populations boom in Manchester and cities like it, communities appear and disappear, moulded by the forces of growth and development. What is happening to neighbourliness amid the chaos of urban change? What will city living be like in ten years’ time and should we – can we? – steer change in a different direction?

This weekend event is an open invitation to be part of a conversation about how we live together. Bringing together a diverse range of voices and practices – from performance to activism, economics to planning – we’ll ask important questions about how rapid development is being driven and who it is affecting.

Curated by Florian Malzacher and artists ensemble Quarantine, known for their performance works and public events, this weekend marks the end of a three-year artistic project called Meet the Neighbours, which has been inviting artists into the heart of rapidly developing cities in the UK, France, Poland, the Netherlands and Morocco.

Saturday 9- Sunday 10 November 2019
