The International Centre for Voice (ICV) was established in 2000 at Central School of Speech & Drama,University of London, to serve the professional development of teachers and users of voice and speech.
After a brief hiatus during which its activities were suspended, the ICV was re-launched in 2009 in a format that is scaled down but that yet meets the needs of today's voice and speech practitioners. ICVmembership is open to fully qualified or practising teachers of voice and speech along with other professionals voice users such as actors, singers, teachers and directors.
The vision for the future of the The International Centre for Voice (ICV) is based on three core aims:
1. To create and maintain a professional forum, resource base and network for teachers and other interested professionals by establishing:
2. To provide training and professional updating for voice teachers by offering:
3. To promote research and development in the field of voice training by establishing:
It is intended that ultimately all these facets will be operational however it is prudent in the current climate to grow slowly only expanding as our membership income (and thus funding and volunteer workforce) permits.
As an initial step ICV will pursue the following activities:
The ICV must be largely self funding. It follows, therefore, that a critical mass of membership fee income must flow to provide the necessary resources for this activity. It is hoped that all interested voice practitioners will put as much effort as they are able into helping us to recruit members. After formal launch, a review of membership activity will take place after an 18 month period at which time it will be assessed whether additional services might be added.
