Independent Venue Community (IVC) supports, nurtures and celebrates independent music venues and the communities around them, on and off stage, all year round. We do this by bringing a programme of activity, aimed at new audiences, to be delivered in the venues during the day, throughout the year, around the country. The program unlocks the potential of venues and the talent of the communities around them, by developing new skills, opening up opportunities to engage with like-minded people to enjoy arts and culture and create greater local community spirit on a national scale.
