The Many Ways We Partner

We Don't Just Present, We Partner

Indigenous Performance Productions approaches all of our points of connection, be it with our artists, our venues our staff or our communities as relationships first that we foster into partnerships.   We connect to others by aligning our voices and concerns with one another to create mutually uplifting relationships all in the name of amplifying Indigenous voices.  We believe that the only way to create social change is by modeling it in everything we do. 


Partnering with Presenters

IPP goes beyond the work of a normal booking agency.  Our presenters are our partners and allies in our mission to amplify Indigenous voices.  We work together to builds inter-cultural connections that create awareness of the experiences of Indigenous artists and the issues they face while fostering enduring bonds.

Artist Partnerships

We work to help tour ready Indigenous and Native artists connect to performance opportunities through our network of presenter partnerships and host organizations, as well as providing on-going advocacy and funding support.  We also assist emerging Indigenous artists through artist consultations, fiscal sponsorships and mentorship programs.  Our goal is help Indigenous artists at every level find the resources and guidance they need to help them reach their vision for themselves.
