Membership Types

You can join ITC as an organisation, a hub or as an independent producer.

Organisation Membership

ITC welcomes organisation members at all stages of their development. You do not have to be a registered company in order to join. Organisation membership fees are based on turnover (i.e. total income excluding Capital grants) for the previous year. You can see how our payment structure works here.

Hub Membership

ITC is encouraging venues and other larger organisations to join us in a way that will support their own organisations and the smaller organisations and artists that they engage with and are working to develop. This means:

• Access to phone & email advice for your own organisation
• Advice for new, independent artists & newly forming organisations that you support.
• 20% discount on ITC membership for any resident companies within your organisation
• Access to members’ rates for training for all your staff & affiliated artists both on our core programme or for in-house courses.
• Access to free member’s forums for all your staff & affiliated practitioners.
• Access to the resources in the Members’ Zone of the ITC website for your own organisation & all your affiliated artists and practitioners.

Hub Membership is £1020 + VAT a year flat rate. For more information read our hub membership pack.

Independent Membership

Independent membership is designed to support independent producers. ITC will provide support and guidance for your own work but can't advise you on behalf of organisations that could be ITC members themselves. If a company you are working for wants to join ITC we can offer them a introductory discount. Independent Membership costs £180 + VAT a year (£216.00)
