The Big Splash

Isle of Man

Hospice Isle of Man

From May to September 2022, Hospice Isle of Man unleashed its next Wild in Art Trail on the Isle of Man.

Following the success of the Wallabies Gone Wild art trail in 2019, The Big Splash saw a large pod of individually designed Dolphin sculptures placed around the Isle of Man for everyone to see and enjoy. Forming an unforgettable 12-week trail around the island’s most spectacular coastal locations and open spaces, these beautifully-decorated sculptures helped spark a journey of marine exploration like never before.

Not only encouraging people to explore the Island over the summer, the fundraising event closed with a sculpture auction where £151,000 was raised for Hospice Isle of Man’s end of life and palliative care services.
