Broadening and interaction play an important role in the programming. 

Veem House for Performance is being run by a small team of employees and freelancers. The evening staff consists of a small group of ACO’s (evening coordinators) and box office/bar employees that work together to make sure our audiences are received warmly and experience a hospitable evening.
