During MIF17 we ran a series of digital skills workshops exclusively for members of My Festival, MIF’s creative community, taking in everything from Twitter and digital storytelling apps to YouTube and live-streaming. Supported by Arts Council England’s Ambition for Excellence, we’ll be exploring over the next few months ideas around how best we can work collaboratively across the city to build digital capacity in the cultural sector.

Past workshops within this programme have included:

  • Twitter 101 and curating social media
  • Digital Storymaking
  • Live Streaming
  • Creating Social Audio
  • An Introduction to Vlogging
  • Video Storytelling

Sign up to My Festival and be among the first to know what’s on offer.

Get involved

Every year thousands of people take part in Manchester International Festival – as volunteers and participants in shows, skills development workshops, creative activities or even as planners of their own micro-international Festivals for their friends and neighbors.

This year we’ve launched My Festival, a new creative community for MIF and a way of keeping up to date with (and helping shape) what MIF is doing locally. It’s a way of connecting with MIF, and all of our brilliant local contributors, year-round.
