MIF’s Neighbourhood Organiser initiative has been designed to enhance our engagement with local communities throughout Greater Manchester. The initiative creates a two-way channel of communication: for MIF to share information and opportunities related to the Festival and The Factory with local residents, and for Greater Manchester communities to let us know what’s important to them and what they want to see from us.
All six of our Neighbourhood Organisers are Greater Manchester residents, deeply embedded in their local communities – a familiar face and trusted voice. They are also integral members of the MIF team, in paid roles supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
Here we meet each of the six Neighbourhood Organisers, and discover a little more about their history of community work and passion for their local area.
