Art School Live is a project focused on bringing live music to the MMU campus. Started by technicians at the university, the project offers students invaluable experience in planning and producing a professional hybrid event.

All Art School Live events are filmed and live-streamed using a multi-cam setup, meaning that the project also builds up an archive of performance videos documenting Manchester’s vibrant music scene.
