MIF runs a large and innovative Creative Learning Programme (CLP), which is designed to develop community engagement with MIF and to leave a lasting legacy for MIF in the city and the region.

The Creative Learning Director is a Senior Post that sits on MIF’s Senior Management Team.  The post-holder will work with the Artistic Director to review the progress and strategic vision for the CLP (including setting key aims, objectives and outputs) after each Festival and will take day to day managerial responsibility for the effective delivery of the programme. As MIF evolves towards operation of both the Festival and its new year-round cultural venue, Factory, MIF’s CLD is also responsible for developing the vision, strategy and practical details for a new and ground-breaking learning and participatory offer at this extraordinary new venue.

Recognising that a core source of support for the development and delivery of MIF’s CLP are funding partnerships with the Association of Greater Manchester Authorities (AGMA) and Charitable Trusts and Foundations, the Creative Learning Director additionally leads the development and delivery of strategies to build relationships with these parties to leverage funding support from them.
