Supporting MIF17

Having admired and wondered at the creative talent championed and upheld by Manchester International Festival (MIF), Planit-IE is delighted to announce our active support of this years’ Festival as a Corporate Member.

MIF is the world’s first artist-led festival of original, new work and special events. The Festival is staged every two years in Manchester, at venues all over the city. MIF has commissioned, produced and presented world premieres by artists as diverse as Björk, Steve McQueen, Maxine Peake, Robert Wilson, Elbow, Wayne McGregor, The xx, Zaha Hadid Architects, Damon Albarn, Punchdrunk and Marina Abramović, among many others. The festival brings together artists from different art forms and backgrounds to create dynamic, innovative and forward-thinking new work, which is staged in a rich tapestry of venues across Greater Manchester – from theatres, galleries and concert halls to railway depots, churches and car parks.

We have a myriad of reasons for supporting the creative and cultural ventures of this inspirational initiative. MIF develops new work for and in the city, investing in local people whilst bringing international artists to Manchester, a city that we have been engrained in and proud to be part of for 20 years. The Festival has also forged a global reputation and many of its commissions tour globally – taking Manchester and the MIF brand with them.

MIF17 takes place between 29 June – 16 July 2017.
