With no major donors to answer to, no organisational KPI’s to meet and no programming pressure to retain subscribers, independent artists create on their own terms. But what does it mean to be without ongoing support, a stable income and the validation of the wider industry? In recent years, we’ve seen an increase in independent Asian Australian companies and productions that have broadened the Sydney theatre scene. In this Longhouse, we explore the process of producing independently and what it takes to tell your own story. Learn and hear from our panel of independent practitioners who thrive doing it their way.
