MIF offers local artists, students, school groups and members of the public a fantastic range of creative development opportunities all year round, from six-month paid traineeships to one-off and regular events that are open to anyone and everyone.

Meet our MIF21 Fellows

MIF21 Creative Fellowships offered five Greater Manchester-based artists and creatives the unique opportunity to connect with our team, our artists and the MIF21 Festival. Each Creative Fellow shadowed the artistic team working on a major Festival show, getting an insider’s view into its creation, production and presentation.


School & College Collaborations

We support creative learning in schools and colleges in Greater Manchester year-round, helping pupils of all ages to develop their creativity through key initiatives inspired by some of the world premieres on our Festival programme.
