As venues experience ever increasing financial pressures, this Network Meeting asks how they can continue to programme world music and support the development of emerging artists, both local and visiting. With the aim of sharing expertise and developing networks, this first Venues Network Meeting will discuss matters of sustainability. Delegates are invited to present initiatives on identifying and effectively communicating to new audiences; presentations with local partners; and touring programmes.
