The Factory

The Factory is a world-class cultural space currently being built in the heart of Manchester. Building on the success of MIF, it will commission and present the world’s most exciting artists, attracting up to 850,000 visitors a year. We've just launched Factory Futures, a scheme to help young people learn key skills through free work experience programmes, traineeships and paid internships.
