Thousands of people take part in each Manchester International Festival – as volunteers, participants in shows, in skills development workshops and creative activities, or even as planners of their own micro-international Festivals for their friends and neighbours with Festival in my House. And in 2016 we launched My Festival, a new creative community for MIF and a way to keep-up-to-date (and help shape) what MIF is doing locally.
As an opening event for MIF19, Yoko Ono’s BELLS FOR PEACE will invite Manchester to gather together and send a message of peace to the world. Thousands of diverse voices and a people’s orchestra of bells will ring and sing out for peace in Cathedral Gardens. Further details of how you can be involved in this event will be coming soon. To be the first to hear, sign up to My Festival via the link below.
