Interdependence is our ideas programme, bringing together audiences, artists and guest speakers to talk about themes and questions inspired by MIF19.

Our three Saturday summits focus on three global challenges, exploring bridges from ideas to real-world change. In addition, look out for special daily conversations and a programme of artists’ talks throughout MIF19, which we’ll be announcing here between now and the start of the Festival.

Our first summit is about the scale of the transformation needed at this critical moment in human history. The problems we face are global, and often as individuals, it’s easy to feel hopeless. When bold utopian visions are offered – from a society without work to a ‘green new deal’ – they are often dismissed as fantasies. So are we dreaming too big or too small? Join leading thinkers and radical doers for practical, everyday advice on how to completely change the world. With speakers including Kwame Kwei-Armah Tree, Ibrahim Mahama Parliament of Ghosts, Rimini Protokoll Utopolis Manchester and Michael Symmons Roberts The Anvil.

Produced by Manchester International Festival in partnership with New Constellations and Goethe-Institut London, and in association with The Whitworth
