The Arts Council is dedicated to improving the quality of life of Island residents through the development of the arts. We believe it is our duty to assist arts projects or training within the community in any way that we can. One of the ways that we do this is by offering advice and information ranging from advice on running events to information about qualifications or initiatives available in the community.

Our Arts Officers will seek to assist any query with the resources available to them; however when this is not possible they will refer you to one of our Council Members or a member of the artistic community with expertise in that area.

Read about more about our Arts Council Officers and Members on our Overview page.

If you wish to seek any advice or information please feel free to contact us by phone, email or by filling out an enquiry form, all of which can be found on the Contact page.

The documents below offer useful advice and guidance on seeking alternative sources of funding for those wishing to study the arts. We also include a guide to help you choose the right performing arts school for you.
