The Archibald Knox Forum is a Manx educational charity set up in 2017. It has one objective: "the advancement of the education of the public, both in the Isle of Man and world-wide, in relation to the work and legacy of Archibald Knox, namely the Manx artist/designer of that name born in the Isle of Man in 1864 and who died there in 1933."

The charity produces a free quarterly newsletter(400 recipients so far) has a Facebook page (c3,000 followers so far), website (11,000 audience so far), a drop-in centre and holds events, exhibitions, film shows and visits to places of Knox interest.

Below are 3 examples of Knox’s work.

From April 2024 to April 2025 we will hold the biggest ever Archibald Knox exhibition and event in the world, here on the Isle of Man.

As well as an exhibition of 175 items at the main gallery of the Manx museum there will also be lectures, workshops, film shows and visits to places of Knox interest, throughout the Island. Many of the exhibits will be from museums and private collectors and are not normally seen by the public.

In order to stage such an event funds are needed between now and 2024 to cover the costs of marketing and promotion, travel, development of a Knox Trail, insurance, packing, transport and production of a catalogue etc.
