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. You can see some of these artists’ responses to MIF commissions on www.mif.co.uk/live, a website supported by the BBC.

MIF’s Creative50 is supported by the Arts Council’s Ambition for Excellence programme and Bruntwood.
