Our Aims

The Council aims to increase involvement with the arts, from the youngest in the community to the oldest. We do this through a number of initiatives and funding schemes; more information please see the Funding page.

The IOM Arts Council and Culture Vannin both work to promote and develop arts and culture on the Isle of Man, but we do so in very different and wholly distinct ways.

A vibrant arts and cultural scene is not just 'nice to have'; it's vital both to our wellbeing and our sense of place. We want the very best for our creative and cultural communities. We want to support people to take part in whichever way is best for them. We want to make sure arts and culture belong to everyone.
