The Independent Producers Initiative aims to strengthen and develop the business models of independent producers. Funds are available for producers to develop via touring, professional development and business needs.

Funds support and develop independent producers in any performing arts related performance artform and mixed artforms, such as music, dance, theatre, hybrid and circus. 
This is an initiative administered by the Australia Council for the Arts. All applications will be assessed by an independent committee selected by Independent Producers Australia (IPA).
