What we do - Yn obbyr ain

Culture Vannin awards grants and initiates schemes whilst supporting the work of development officers for music and language. The work of Culture Vannin has been fundamental to the revival of interest and support for Manx language and culture over the last twenty years.

The members meet on a regular basis throughout the year to consider applications for grants and to develop schemes which range over a wide area of Manx life including wildlife, geology, language, music, archaeology, art, history, social anthropology, oral history, archiving, education and the production of recordings and videos.

Our work focuses on:

  1. Celebrating Manx culture
  2. Supporting Manx creativity through innovation
  3. Promoting a vibrant national identity for the Isle of Man
  4. Inspiring life-long learning and discovery
  5. Sharing an understanding of our Island story with everyone, everywhere
  6. Developing educational resources and research opportunities
  7. Offering ways to connect with our unique identity
  8. Ensuring a strong living culture for future generations
  9. Recognising the inclusive nature of our cultural identity
  10. Putting Culture Vannin at the heart of our community
