My Festival has presented many different Social and Welcome events over the past eight months – but what exactly are these one-off events around Manchester?
- Social events could be anything from a tea party or film night to a simple evening of conversations – all hosted by local residents and communities around Manchester who may have previously had little interaction with MIF.
- Welcome events are produced by local residents and communities in connection with a specific MIF event. Through conversations, meetings and workshops, each community designs and hosts their own Welcome, inviting audiences to learn more about MIF and the communities’ interests in the city.
My Festival’s Social and Welcome events have featured artistic responses, creative conversations and even cultural cuisine – and each one has been very special. If you’re interested in organising a future event, sign up to My Festival for updates on how you can get involved.
Social and Welcome events are a part of My Festival, supported by the Baring Foundation, the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
