Manifest’s Slogan is Create. Exhibit. Repeat.
Each May, Columbia College Chicago takes over the South Loop with Manifest, an all-day festival that showcases the hard work and talent of our wildly creative students. Manifest is the college’s signature event, showcasing senior and graduate student work. The student-run event features gallery exhibitions, live music, film screenings, original video games, fashion shows, literary readings, and more.
Interactive Arts and Media (IAM) participates each year with a showcase of student work, unique experiences like a virtual photo booth, and an annual Game Jam (a gaming competition where students have 24 hours-time to create a game)
At Manifest 2018 the winning game was Together Alone inspired by the Museum of Contemporary Photography. Players explore a space where photography reveals the true selves of characters in the game. Manifest brings the entire community together to celebrate our creative spirit and develop long- lasting, memorable relationships and connections.
