The IOM Arts Council are shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of Jonathan 'Jonno' Gollow. Jonno was a member of the Arts Council from 2007 to 2012 and during his time on the Council was a great champion for music, identifying an audience for a guitar festival and setting up GuitarFest while he was on the Arts Council. Jonno brought keen financial expertise to the Arts Council and could be relied upon to provide scrutiny and suggestions for best value for money. He also encouraged access to the arts for young people and smaller sections of our community and was a valued ambassador for arts on the Isle of Man and the Arts Council. The Arts Council offers its sympathy and kind wishes to Jonno's family and friends.
