The Ventnor Exchange aims to foster and develop a unique creative community and economy on the Isle of Wight.

At the heart of this is our relationship and work with a broad range of artists and creative practitioners. As well as commissioning and booking artists we host a whole range of networking opportunities, professional development and training.
