EXTRAORDINARY We step out of the everyday.
OPEN We are generous and welcoming to everyone.
DETERMINED We are brave, at times, willful. We will always do things differently.
INVENTIVE We explore new ways of working; thinking and creating – we embrace the new and the different.
INTERNATIONAL We share ideas, projects, skills and training with our peers worldwide, bringing together extraordinary teams of artists from all over the world.
MIF provides space for great artists from around the world to do extraordinary things: things they’ve always dreamed of doing, things they might not be able to do anywhere else. We’re transforming how artists can create this work through pioneering training, development and employment opportunities.
We share our ideas with our international partners and collaborators to generate new thinking and debate. We believe in cultural democracy - that everyone has the right to help shape our culture.
We live by our values – open, determined, inventive, extraordinary and international. Central to our mission, vision and values is that our artists, audiences, participants and staff represent the diversity of our global city.
