PLUS for the very first time, we’ll also be working with people in Manchester to host a micro-international festival outside
of their home with Festival in My Neighbourhood**. If you have an idea for a micro-international
festival in your local area that involves partnering with other groups or individuals in a communal
space such as your local park, library, football ground, place of worship, concert hall, library
or similar, we can help with event planning and producer support, as well as a budget of £3000.
Music, dance, drama or visual art, there’s really no limit except your imagination. Once submitted, your idea will be selected
against the above criteria by a panel of former hosts and the MIF team. You don’t have to have experience
creating this type of event before – we’ll help you every step of the way.
If you have any questions
please email MIF’s Community Producer, Rizwan Iqbal
For inspiration, you can listen to BBC Radio 4’s My House programme, a documentary on the Festival in My House series, and browse
the previous Festival in My House events below.
HOW TO APPLY:
Thank you to everyone who submitted an idea to host a micro-international festival in your house, the proposals will be
reviewed on the 8 May by a panel formed of members of the MIF team and curators from previous Festival in My House events.
If you missed the first deadline for the Festival in My House programme, you will be pleased to hear that you can still submit
your ideas and they will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.
We are still welcoming applications from Manchester wards to host
a micro-international festival in your neighbourhood. The deadline for these applications is 1 June.
You can keep up-to-date with this and other conversations by joining MIF’s Creative Community Facebook page
