IoM Art Festival launches today

Born out of western WOSAT Arts Festival

The Isle of Man Arts Festival will launch tonight (Thurs).

Clare Christian OBE will cut the ribbon at Noa Bakehouse - opening a series of gatherings to celebrate the achievements of Manx artists, and their visual and musical artistry.

They've been organised by The Creative Network in collaboration with the Isle of Man Arts Council - and will take place across a wide range of public and private venues.

It was born out of the successful five-year western WOSAT Arts Festival - encouraging people to view creatives at work in their own environments.

Those who want to get involved are invited to attend the opening from 6:30pm.
