Manchester International Festival

Manchester International Festival (MIF) is the world’s first festival of original, new work and special events. The Festival is staged every two years in Manchester, UK – the next edition will take place 4 – 21 July 2019 at venues all over the city.

We believe it’s important to build a community of young people who feel connected with Manchester International Festival and The Factory:

To empower young people through creativity, and give autonomy to young people.

To develop an understanding of young people's needs.

To create opportunities for young people to engage with MIF on their terms whether as a participant; creator; influencer; advocate; audience member or volunteer.
