In pictures: MIF17 launch
On Thursday 9 March, around 500 people gathered together in the industrial depths of Mayfield to hear about the programme for Manchester International Festival 2017.
The event saw MIF’s Artistic Director and Chief Executive John McGrath introduce the commissions you’ll experience in the 2017 festival with selected MIF17 artists Karl Hyde, Yael Bartana, Mary Anne Hobbs, Jane Horrocks, Bernard Sumner and more joining him on stage, while Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, Nina Freeman and Samson Young joined the event via video link.
