Join us! Why become a Member of the Indigenous Performing Arts Alliance (IPAA)?

IPAA is a member-driven organization serving Indigenous artists and arts organisations across Turtle Island. We provide opportunities for arts and culture workers to connect with one another, gain skills and knowledge from professional development programs, and promote their work and events among the Indigenous Performing Arts Network (IPN).

For non-Indigenous friends, we love our allies! You can join us as an Ally Individual or Ally Organization. As an Ally Member, you will receive many of the same benefits with some limitations. You can learn more about the benefits of membership below.

Access to Online Directory of Arts Professionals Gain access to a national network of Indigenous artists and arts organisations!

Enhance Your Digital Presence: As a member of IPAA, a Wikidata ID will be created for you based on the information you share on your profile.
