Design Inspiration

The design for the Isle of Man Arts Council dolphin was inspired by the fantastic array of arts venues on the Isle of Man, celebrating the buildings where the public meet to enjoy and participate in artistic and creative activities which make up a vital part of the island’s cultural tapestry. Artist, Grainney Sheard, of Little Moot Studio defined an arts venue as: “A functional community centre which aims to encourage arts and creative practice and to provide facilities such as a theatre space, a gallery space, a venue for musical performance, workshop areas and educational facilities”.
