Every year, IndieFest commissions and invites artists of diverse creative expressions and lived experiences to collaborate on new works for our festival. Express is a platform that celebrates collaborative art-making and centres creative expression as a powerful tool for community building. 



The Apocrypha Chronicles is a new podcast that uses generative storytelling and audio-drama to simultaneously depict the present-day struggles of artists navigating the closure of performance spaces and cultural activities and the hopeful future that might emerge in the wake of the 2020 pandemic. Episodes will be released weekly starting January 19.
