Do you live in Ebbw Vale or Blaenau Gwent and would like a say on the live events that happen in your area? Ebbw Vale Institute (EVI) is setting up a Community Programming Group to plan what’s going on in this historic community building.
After a period of closure due to COVID-19, EVI is reopening, and we want YOU to help us decide on a programme of cultural events for the town and surrounding area. Think live music, comedy, theatre, family events, exhibitions and more!
EVI was founded in 1849 to promote cultural exchange in the neighbourhood. ProMo-Cymru regenerated the empty building to develop EVI as a community and cultural centre, with facilities including training and meeting spaces, a professional recording studio, café, bar and live performance space. It is a venue that offers a programme of creative activities, learning and social enterprise development for the communities it serves.
Join our group
As we get ready to open our doors to the public once again, we’re looking for your help.
The EVI Community Programming group will be a unique opportunity to have a say about what happens in your area. Volunteering your time means you will learn new skills about how a building like ours operates and what goes on behind the scenes when programming and promoting events. You don’t need to have any experience – we want to hear from anyone of any age or background. Tell us about the type of events that you, your friends and family would like to see taking place in the building.
The EVI Community Meet will be held every other Thursday, 5-6pm, starting on 24 March 2022. You will be able to attend in person or join us on Zoom.
