Manchester International Festival - Interdependence: Future Myths


Key facts

Genre: Event with live subtitles


Interdependence is our ideas programme, bringing together audiences, artists and guest speakers to talk about themes and questions inspired by MIF19.

Our three Saturday summits focus on three global challenges, exploring bridges from ideas to real-world change. In addition, look out for special daily conversations and a programme of artists’ talks throughout MIF19, which we’ll be announcing here between now and the start of the Festival.

For most of history, humans have been guided by religion and myths that have given a sense of meaning. Now we live in an information age but no longer know who to trust and increasingly feel that our lives are inconsequential. What are the new stories we need and who should tell them? Speakers including Sibylle Peters Animals of Manchester including HUMANZ, Adania Shibli and Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o Studio Créole explore the power of memory, language and imagination to shape who we are.

The afternoon session is presented by gal-dem, the pioneering new media publication run by women and non-binary people of colour.

Produced by Manchester International Festival in partnership with gal-dem

10am – 12noon and 1pm – 4pm
