The Independent Theatre Council (ITC) is the management association for performing arts’ independent sector. We are a community of peers spread across the UK working in drama, dance, opera and musical theatre, mime and physical theatre, circus, puppetry, street arts and mixed media. ITC exists to enable the creation of high quality professional performing arts by supporting, representing and developing those who manage and produce it. ITC believes that good art thrives on good management. As well as providing unlimited advice on a full range of legal, managerial and financial topics, ITC runs a range of training programmes designed to provide participants with the toolkit of essential skills and specialist knowledge needed to run a performing arts company successfully.
