Manchester International Festival
A catalyst for art and culture in the city
We are proud sponsors of Manchester International Festival, an innovative and forward-thinking catalyst for art and culture in Manchester.
We have enjoyed a collaborative relationship with the Festival team since the launch of Studio North in 2015, when we assisted with the curation of the Glasshouse in Festival Square and hosted a panel debate about ‘art x architecture’.
We are privileged to contribute to the festival, whether it was designing Festival Square in 2021, or our 2017 “What is the City but the People?” commission – which featured a 100 metre long runway along which 150 people paraded. Being a part of this “celebration of Manchester” has been a brilliant experience, enjoyed by all involved.
