Manchester International Festival has supported a range of artist networks across recent years, including our Daily Drop-Ins online during the Covid lockdowns. At Factory International we'll have many more opportunities to meet in real space, and will be hosting regular artist socials and networking events, where creatives from Manchester and beyond can meet, get and share advice and support, and dream up new projects together. Artist networking events will be advertised regularly on our website and social media – check out the latest opportunities below and sign up to stay in the loop on future events.
