Independent Arts & Media is a unique and growing fiscal sponsor for artists, journalists and media producers. We support independent producers and projects that advance our mission, by enabling independent producers doing non-commercial work in the public interest to raise their own funding, and develop and present their work on their own terms.

Our vision for fiscal sponsorship as a transformative “free speech platform” comes from our own experiences as journalists, artists, and media producers who needed better infrastructure for their public-interest work.

IAM currently supports over 60 affiliates dedicated to non-commercial work in media and the arts, including publishing, theater, dance, music, visual art, film and video, journalism, history, and public-events production.
