Navigating the Future of the Independent Venue

Independent Venues are common places that breed and support artists, community, and cultural identity, led by their workers, staff and bookers. When independent live music comes to a screeching halt, what happens to everyone? We talk to venue owners, bookers and promoters who open up about their challenges to maintain a social business, what it looks like for their future and the kind of support needed well beyond their reopen.
