MIF will be the operator for The Factory, creating a year-round programme of work and running the building, which is due to open 2020. The Factory will give audiences the opportunity to enjoy the broadest range of art forms and cultural experiences – including dance, theatre, music, opera, visual arts, spoken word, popular culture and innovative contemporary work incorporating multiple media and technologies. Artists from across the world will be invited to create new work in the building’s extraordinary spaces.
If you’d like to get even closer to the Festival, consider becoming an MIF Pioneer. Our Pioneers play a key role in supporting the Festival and get nearer to the heart of what we do.
This year, MIF has invited 50 emerging creative individuals across Greater Manchester to join us on a three-month journey towards the Festival, using new digital tools and technologies to develop their practice and respond to the MIF17 programme. Creative50 includes an array of creative practitioners from a range of disciplines, including writers, filmmakers, visual artists, designers, performers, poets, musicians and many others.
