MIF Creative

International Artists. Local People. Extraordinary Experiences.

Each Festival, MIF commissions a series of leading artists or thinkers to create ambitious new work in partnership with local people. These commissions, called MIF Creative, sit at the heart of the Festival, and share MIF’s principles of innovation, originality and internationalism, whilst offering unique opportunities for residents to engage with MIF in different ways.

Read the stories of Manchester people, access exclusive content and go behind-the-scenes of 2015’s MIF Creative commissions –The Tale of Mr Tumble, FlexN Manchester and Neck of the Woods.

MIF Creative launched in 2009 and previous projects have seen artists as diverse as John Tavener, Victoria WoodBjörkJeremy Deller and Amadou & Mariam working with equally diverse Mancunians – from faith groups to schoolchildren via ramblers and refugee and asylum seeker musicians. A key aim is to develop once-in-a-lifetime experiences, underpinned by mechanisms to support longer-term legacy and lasting local impact.
