What We Do
A little over three years ago we started The Venture Compound to be a performing arts space for avant-garde musicians and sound artists. Since then, we’ve become a 501(c)3 organization, hosted over 100 visual artists from the Tampa Bay area and brought performers from Japan, Hungary, Switzerland, Mexico, France and every corner of the United States. Most importantly The Venture Compound has become the place for countless local bands and artists to have their first shows.
We’ve also created several original programming series that create audiences for emerging and established artists: the Pangaea Project which is in its 55th installment, We Are Jazz, and our newest series Hyperbolic Chamber Music bringing small-ensemble orchestral compositions to a new audience. We also host several annual festivals with our community partners such as St. Pete Zine Fest, the Florida Free Film Fest, St. Pete Noise Fest and Florida Label Fest.
