This festival, MIF invited 50 emerging creative individuals across Greater Manchester to take part in a three-month journey with us in the run up to and during MIF17, 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.creative50.mif.co.uk, a website dedicated to the Creative50 programme.
