Arts Weekend Manager

MIF invites great artists from across the globe to create extraordinary new work for the Festival, which is staged every two years at venues and found spaces across Manchester. Our future home is The Factory, a world-class cultural space being built in the heart of the city, where we’ll present a year-round programme and artists will be able to develop work of huge ambition and scale that they might not be able to anywhere else.

To plan in collaboration with the International Department and the Artistic and Creative Director, as well as manage and oversee MIF21 Arts Weekend. A multi day networking event for international representatives of Arts organisations and Festivals from around the world.

We particularly encourage people from Greater Manchester and underrepresented backgrounds to apply. The role will require the post holder to be based remotely initially in-line with government guidelines, however we expect the post holder to be based in Manchester nearer to the delivery of MIF ’21.
