In addition to live events, the Foundation is engaged, with the support of such institutions as Mibact and the Veneto Region), in project of artists-in-residence to encourage young artists, new programs of multidisciplinary research and local theatrical, musical and dance companies. It has a number of educational programs (#tcvieducational) for audiences of all ages (from 0 to 90+) and projects of audience development and audience engagement, guided by professional operators.

This wide variety of cultural offering is made possible thanks to the collaboration of prestigious artists and institutional partners, and with intense participation in national and regional networks in which the City of Vicenza Civic Theater often has a role of leadership. (The Teatri Vi.Vi. network of the main theaters in the province of Vicenza; At Home with Us – artistic residency programs for the theater companies of the Veneto Region, to bring audiences back to the theater after the pandemic, Vivo Teatro – a network for the promotion of culture in the area, supported by the Cariverona Foundation).
