the modernist society / magazine / bookshop / gallery is a not for profit social enterprise
We organise city mooches, talks, film screenings and exhibitions; we publish pamphlets, zines, photo books and magazines; we are specifically focused on raising awareness of modernist architecture and design and support a network of city 'chapters' in Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool, Huddersfield, Manchester, Sheffield & Swansea.. oh and we also run a gallery-bookshop!
We rely on sales, donations and memberships to carry out our work, but only around 5 per cent of the people on our mailing list are Modernist Society members? If that increased to just 10 per cent, we would be far more sustainable, and have to worry a lot less about our future.
Memberships make all the difference for us and that's why we want to increase the number of people who support us by becoming a member.
We receive only a small proportion of our funding from charitable or public sources (and sometimes none at all), and so the Modernist Society relies significantly on you, our members, followers and friends... and after the Covid19 pandemic - we need your support more than ever.
