Who We Are

The Isle of Man Arts Council is a sponsored body of the Isle of Man Government's Department of Education, Sport and Culture.

With an entirely voluntary membership, it was established to offer advice and support local arts amateurs and professionals as well as visiting artists.

'Arts, culture and creativity for everyone' is a shared vision for an Isle of Man where arts and culture are at the heart of our everyday life and everyone has the opportunity to be creative. 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.
