CaPT Independent Producers Initiative (CIPI)

Modelled on TNA’s successful Victorian Independent Producers Initiative (VIPI), this initiative supports CaPT independent producers across Australia who work with artists in and from Victoria. It will increase the size and the diversity of the CaPT producing pool and includes two of the three core components from VIPI: the Emerging Producers Lab and the Salon Series, along with a program of peer coaching sessions for artists. 

This initiative has a dedicated Program Producer on the CaPT Team. If you have questions about any of these programs, please email Charice on

Salon Series

The Salon Series includes professional development sessions, networking and peer learning for the wider Victorian CaPT sector. The series will respond to the most urgent skill requirements and provide a forum for conversations about the future of the sector. It will fold in the existing CaPT Producers Club to include facilitated workshop sessions for independent CaPT producers.

Salons will begin in early 2023 - stay tuned!

PEER Coaching Program

The Peer Coaching Program offers free one-on-one support for 10 CaPT artists who are each matched with an experienced producer to discuss career planning, business planning, work-life balance support or network building. Both the artist and the producer are paid for their time. The application process is simple and prioritises people from under-represented groups.

TNA will be running two rounds of the Peer Coaching Programs (for 10 artists total). One round in 2023 and one round in 2024 - stay tuned!

Emerging Producer Lab

The Emerging Producer Lab supports four people with some producing experience in the CaPT sector, facilitating their professional development and capacity to work with CaPT artists and organisations. The Lab will consist of 10 professional development workshops over 12 months bespoke to the most urgent needs, skills and conversations that the participants have identified.
