UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man Partners Manx Whale and Dolphin Watch (MWDW) and Cathedral Isle of Man will showcase the Island's exceptional wildlife and its conservation work via an exhibition in 2023. This project is being run in collaboration with, and celebrating, UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man.
To register your interest please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12th December 2022.
Dates for exhibition:
To be confirmed but from spring 2023 until Manx Wildlife Week, May 2023.
Required to take part are:
Name of your organisation.
A very brief description of the work you do (not too long) and how to get involved, report sightings, etc.
Your contact phone number, email, website and social media @s
Between five and 10 high quality/resolution photos with captions, species, location, photographer if credit needed.
Note that if these are too large for an email to reach MWDW, you should send them via a file transfer site such as WeTransfer with a supporting email. Or pop in to the MWDW shop in Michael Street, Peel. Opening hours vary depending on weather conditions and whether staff are out delivering work, so do check.
You can also supply:
Leaflets etc for a table.
Can we supply existing pop up banners etc?
As the Cathedral has kindly granted hanging space, and is a multi-purpose building, and is unmanned for much of the time, other pop ups etc cannot be accommodated.
What will happen next:
After you register to take part, MWDW will work with you and its designer to create A1 hangers for display within the Cathedral.
Activities linked to the exhibition will be held. More information to follow.
