My Festival

My Festival is MIF’s new creative community. It’s designed to bring you closer to the Festival – and bring the Festival closer to you.

We’re building a new network of creative citizens to help us shape the future of MIF. You’ll be the first to discover how you can take part in our new public projects. You’ll get invitations to MIF workshops and other special events. And you’ll connect with like-minded souls around the city.

My Festival is generously supported by the Baring Foundation, the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
