This document outlines the approach and procedures that underpin the relationship between Manchester International Festival and people taking part in our engagement activity. It is designed to ensure that everyone who engages with the Festival – at whatever level – has a quality and beneficial experience. The guidelines will be available to all staff and anyone taking part in engagement programmes.
Please note that as the range of engagement activity at MIF is significant, and the needs and sensitivities of different projects and people varies, the policy should be treated as general guidance and its application to a specific project or activity should be discussed and reviewed with the Creative Engagement Director at an early stage. The Engagement, Artistic and Executive Directors will decide on any matters not covered by these guidelines.
