As we draw nearer to MIF17’s spectacular opening event, What Is the City but the People?we’re on the hunt for a specific set of very special people to walk down the runway on Thursday 29 June.

Do you know one of the following?

  • Somebody who will become a UK Citizen on Thursday 29 June
  • A couple getting married on Thursday 29 June
  • Manchester’s largest group of siblings
  • The tallest person in Manchester

If you know any people that may fit above, we would love to hear from them via email to whatisthecity@mif.co.uk


What Is the City but the People? is created by the People of Manchester. Directed by Richard Gregory. In association with Islington Mill. From an idea by Jeremy Deller.
