Villages in Action has been using the arts to enrich and support the social vitality of rural communities across Devon for over 20 years. We offer top quality, professional yet affordable arts experiences to communities.
Villages in Action (VIA) is a rural touring scheme based in Crediton, Devon that covers five of the rural Districts of Devon. We help to bring top quality professional performances and workshops at affordable prices to communities through a network of local volunteer promoters.
We are supported by District Councils, including West Devon, East Devon and Teignbridge, as well as Devon County Council and Arts Council England.
