All staff at Manchester School of Art are practicing professionals and researchers in their fields, either as creative artists and designers, or through theoretical approaches to their subject.

Most staff belong to at least one Research Group within MIRIAD, the School of Art’s Research Centre, and many regularly work with external companies and organisations or carry out funded research or projects.

Arts for Health, the UK's longest established arts and health organisation, is also based within MIRIAD.
