taking our culture forward

July 2017, Tynwald approved 'Arts, culture and creativity for everyone - a national development strategy for culture and the arts', which was developed jointly by Culture Vannin and IOM Arts Council.  The ten year vision sets six ambitions, which will be delivered in partnership with our cultural, artistic and creative communities:

  1. Inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy our culture and the arts.
  2. Invest in the Island’s creative community for success and sustainability.
  3. Promote our unique Manx culture and distinctiveness as central to the Island’s image, nationally and internationally.
  4. Champion the arts and culture as fundamental to our wellbeing and sense of place.
  5. Develop knowledge, skills and understanding within our creative and cultural industries.
  6. Inspire and enable people to explore new horizons through innovation, media and technology.
