Manchester Science Festival 2017 – Proposals Wanted

The Manchester Science Festival team is looking for individuals and organisations to partner with us and bring events to our 2017 Festival programme.

In case you haven’t heard of it, Manchester Science Festival is a creative, playful and surprising science festival taking place across Greater Manchester. Produced by the Museum of Science and Industry, it first launched in 2007 and has been going from strength to strength each year. It is now the largest science festival in England and the North’s premier cultural celebration of all things related to science and innovation.

We invite individuals and organisations to take part in the festival by organising bold, creative and ambitious events to celebrate and explore cutting edge contemporary scientific research with our visitors. Check out some of our events from last year’s festival:

Why do individuals and organisations partner with MSF?

“The collaboration with the museum and the chance to be part of such an inspiring city wide event. We also enjoyed being able to showcase the work of diverse artists and bring their work to a new and larger audience”.
– Manchester Science Festival 2016 partner

“The opportunity to be a part of a vibrant, dynamic annual programme of high quality events, which in part highlights the diversity of research and science taking place in Manchester”.
– Manchester Science Festival 2016 partner

“We wished to take part in a local festival with a great reputation and history within the city. We also wanted to connect art with science in a fun and interesting manner and show how the two disciplines work side by side”.
