Manchester International Festival (MIF) is the world’s first festival of original, new work and special events, staged every two years. From 2021, as well as producing a biennial festival, we will also run The Factory, a new state of the art building and producing organisation in the heart of Manchester.

MIF’s programme of work has grown considerably over the past years as it transitions from a bi-annual festival of 18 days to running a year-round programme of work in a large-scale venue which is open 364 days a year. Alongside the venue based programme of new commissions, international presentations, exhibitions and music gigs, the programme will include commercial events, a public programme of talks and conferences and a busy Creative Engagement programme. All of the work will be underpinned by a Skills and Training programme. MIF produces a significant international touring programme and will continue to run the biennial Festival.

Accountable for the planning and delivery of MIF’s programme of work and for developing and managing MIF’s producing capacity and capability as the organisation transitions to running The Factory and beyond.
