The Factory Showcase

Meet the team at Manchester International Festival (MIF) and learn more about The Factory, a new world-class cultural space designed by the world-leading architects OMA, currently being developed in the heart of Manchester. The Factory, which will be operated year-round by MIF, will invite the world’s most exciting artists to make new work for audiences of up to 850,000 a year.

MIF has already developed important partnerships with some of the city’s thriving media, digital and creative industries sectors and this event will explore how we might build on these as we head towards The Factory. It will include a short presentation about The Factory and its programmes from Mark Ball, MIF’s Creative Director. You’ll then get a chance to discuss with the MIF team how The Factory will operate and how you might engage with us.

Afterwards, we’d love you to join us over at Mayfield for Special Edition: Bugzy Malone, the latest in our series of pre-Factory events. You can book two tickets for the special price of £10 each (usual price £22).

Capacity for The Factory Showcase is limited and places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. If you’d like to join us, please book your place by Thu 1 November 2018.
