Haphazard


Live Art for the curious of all ages.

Haphazard is our occasional foray into ‘all ages’ live art, with intriguing images and offbeat oddities dotted in and around the historic Z-arts building in Manchester’s Hulme. Playful, quirky, engaging, and sometimes plain daft: this is a free day out for kids + their adults, adults + their adults — in short, anyone looking for a different day out!

Our fifth Haphazard takes place on Saturday 27 April 2019, 12noon-3pm; with our deadline (Wed 27 Feb, 5pm) for artist’s proposals now passed, we’ll announce the programme during March. To date, Haphazard has seen ping pong balls and squeaky toys; a singing fish and a sax-playing bear; paintball golf and human quoits; a giant periscope, a golden toilet, and a tiny bee-shaped world…

Get a feel for it with 2017’s gallery of images + programme, or delve further with a look at 2016’s gallery/programme, 2015’s gallery/programme, 2013’s gallery/programme.
