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.
