Festival in My House invites Greater Manchester residents to host their own micro-international festival at home. We’ve helped people present everything from slam poetry to classical music in homes across Manchester – and we’re looking for people who would like to follow suit.
You don’t have to have experience of event production. We’ll help you every step of the way with event planning and support from one of our experienced producers, as well as a budget of £1,500. Music, dance, drama, visual art – there’s really no limit except your imagination.
We’re looking for:
Original ideas with a big ambition on a scale that allow you to try something new
Ideas that embrace MIF’s adventurous spirit
Ideas with an international link, large or small
Ideas that could help you build skills and knowledge in a particular area
How to apply
We accept applications on an ongoing basis, and we review all submitted ideas with a panel of former Festival in My House hosts. You can expect to hear back from us within four weeks.
To submit your idea, please download and complete the application form below and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’d prefer to chat with us before you apply, please email Rizwan Iqbal, MIF’s Community Producer, at email@example.com.
Please be aware that Festival in My House is designed for people who have never created an arts festival or event before, and isn’t a professional work engagement or artist commission.
