Unlock your Imagination
MIF is taking part in Unlock Your Imagination, a series of creative challenges for children and young people across the city by Manchester Cultural Education Partnership (MCEP).
MIF’s creative challenge was announced on the Creative Youth Manchester website today and is inspired by Festival in My House. Young people are invited to imagine their own mini-Festival in My House by designing a poster, making a video advert or creating an invitation. In addition, we’re working with some of our Factory partners – Laing O’Rourke, the construction company building The Factory, and Science and Industry Museum, our future neighbours on the site – to create 500 specially designed model kits that will be given to schools across the city, so pupils can build their house and imagine what kind of art they would fill it with.
