     The Venue Partnership Scheme was launched in 2009 as an arts development initiative, aiming to foster partnerships 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 the use of venue facilities, and formulating venue-based marketing and promotion strategies. The scheme also promotes arts in the community and encourages community involvement in arts development.
