     The Venue Partnership Scheme was launched in 2009 as an arts development initiative, aiming to foster partnership between the performance venues and performing arts groups and organisations. Other objectives of the scheme include enhancing the artistic image and character of the venues and their partners, enlarging the audience base, optimising use of facilities, and developing venue-based marketing strategies. The scheme also encourages community involvement in the development of the arts and promotes arts in the community.
