We bring together artists from different art forms and backgrounds to create dynamic, innovative and forward-thinking new work, which we stage in a rich tapestry of venues across Greater Manchester – from theatres, galleries and concert halls to railway depots, churches and car parks. We work closely with venues, festivals and other cultural organisations around the world.
Year-round, we work widely within communities around Manchester through My Festival, a diverse network of creative people forging connections within their communities, and joining our programmes of training activities, workshops and other special events.
Our future home is The Factory – currently under construction in the centre of Manchester. When it opens, The Factory will present one of the most ambitious and adventurous year-round creative programmes in Europe and welcome an estimated 850,000 visitors a year.
