Dedicated to the Gaelic Language of the Isle of Man

Culture Vannin development

Culture Vannin recognises the importance of Manx Gaelic as part of the unique culture of the Island. We firmly believe that continued support for the language should be at the cornerstone of the work of the organisation.

Culture Vannin employs a Manx Language Development Officer - Yn Greinneyder - who is responsible for a wide-range of projects aimed at promoting, supporting and developing the language.

Working as part of Jeebin, the Manx Language Network, we published a new joint Manx Language Strategy in Autumn 2017, the action plan for which will inform much of our ongoing work. The Strategy can be accessed here

Coonceil ny Gaelgey, the Manx Language Advisory Council, acts as a sub-committee of Culture Vannin and provides a translations service between Manx and English.

We support and fund the Gaelic Broadcasting Committee and programming.
