ABOUT INDIE X
Over two decades ago, The Indie Trade Forum was conceived as a two day conference focusing on challenges and issues specific to indie theatre producers. Over the years, the Indie Trade Forum morphed into the TAPA Trade Series which provides ongoing professional development to the full spectrum of TAPA members all year-long. Recognizing the shifting demographics and needs of the current indie environment, TAPA is proud to present the re-conceived version of the Indie Theatre Trade Forum - INDIE X.  INDIE X is presented by the Toronto Alliance for the Performing Arts.
