The Tin's iconic venue, the Coal Vaults in Coventry's Canal Basin, provides a welcoming, safe space for people to enjoy performing and watching innovative music and other performances. The adjoining Community Space is used by the Tin and a wide range of people and organisations to deliver our "Live on Stage" young people's band project, yoga and tai chi, training events, stage exhibitions and generally bring people together. The Tin's rehearsal spaces are part of the UK Music's national Rehearsal Spaces Project.Why the community needs us
The Tin is recognised locally as a special place that nurtures local emerging talent across music genres but also in the arts generally, including the associated sound-engineering, event management, promotion, and other technical skills. These skills are vital to enable venues like the Tin to put on events and for artists to be able to develop sustainable careers. However, they are in short supply locally and nationally and there is an acute gender-gap in the sector that the Tin seeks to addressOur impact on the community
We believe that music is good for everyone's health and wellbeing and that a thriving cultural life is essential for the area's sustainable future. The vision that shapes our charity is active engagement in music, and in the wider arts too, by as many people as possible from across Coventry and Warwickshire. We strive at the Tin to build a strong community of artists and promoters together with anyone and everyone who enjoys artistic performances and events.
