To fulfill this vision, the organization operates in two main channels: one – as an umbrella organization for creators, by providing various professional services to the association’s members: financial management, professional advice in various areas related to the creator’s day-to-day management (such as public relations, crowdfunding, marketing and more). , Third party insurance, professional training, access to professional information, assistance in submitting support applications, and more. As an umbrella organization, the association is the only body in Israel that allows any independent creator who meets the threshold conditions of the Ministry of Culture, to submit a request for support from this ministry. The second – as a factor that strives to lead change in the space in which independent creators operate. The activities in this channel include, among other things: promoting the common interests in cultural and government institutions, initiating festivals for independent creation, developing audiences throughout the country.

The association strives to expand its activities, in order to find ways to help the community of independent artists in general, including beginning artists, and works to improve the “living conditions” and creative spaces of independent artists in Israel. Joining the association is conditional on meeting professional threshold conditions and paying a membership fee. At the basis of our approach is the recognition that the association is of the creators who are members of it and the members in collaboration together outline its ways of operating.

Who can be a member of the EU?

 Any independent artist in the field of theater, and in the field of performing arts – who meets our threshold conditions for joining (the threshold conditions are detailed here). But! Priority will be given to artists who also meet the Ministry of Culture To give priority: IB is the only organization through which anyone who does not have an association, can apply for support from the Ministry of Culture, so we must allow priority). What are these threshold conditions? here. And more mourning! The association is limited to about 50 members. Our ambition is to grow and allow more creators to be friends, but right now that’s the case.

What can I gain from the EU even though I do not meet the threshold?

1. Access to important information: Voices call for festivals, foundations, interesting information from the field and more. Therefore, it is very worthwhile: join our newsletter – here, follow our Facebook page – here, and participate in our seminars and workshops (publications on all platforms: website, newsletter, Facebook).

2. Financial services – management of subsidies, grants, income and expenses: We provide excellent service, even to non-IB members. The service includes financial management and payments to suppliers and service providers. Why is it worthwhile? A grant from the Lottery in the amount of NIS 40,000, for example, will be difficult for you to continue to operate as an exempt dealer. Therefore as an association, we offer to receive grants and supports through us, manage the project supported with our help, we will pay for you to suppliers and service providers. (Therefore, it is worthwhile, for example, to submit an application to the Lottery through IB and so on…).

3. Warehouse: We have a warehouse, we offer storage space for small shows at a fair price. For more information click here.

4. Annual Conference: Every year we hold an interesting and important annual conference, designed for independent creators. Stay in touch and come to the annual conference.

5. Workshops and seminars: Every month there are workshops and seminars open to independent creators wherever they are. The marriages we are dealing with: marketing, sales, overseas marketing, promotion of plays on Facebook, status as a creator, exempt dealer in the tax authorities, special meetings with representatives of the Lottery, representatives of the Ministry of Culture and more…

Apart from these – initiating wide-ranging projects

The association sees itself as a mission of the community of independent theater creators. Such projects affect the space of independent creation in general, regardless of EU membership. For example: * Effective and continuous action to change the method of supporting independent artists in the Ministry of Culture. * Building audiences and projects that affect the volume of independent performances in the periphery. The various while maintaining the agenda of the creative community and ranging between the parties. (The text is worded in masculine for convenience only and addresses all genders).

IB is supported by the Ministry of Culture on the basis of the test of support for “umbrella organizations.” The support of the Ministry of Culture allows us to conduct, initiate activities and promote independent creators who are members of the association. The creators who are members of the association, who meet the threshold conditions of the Cultural Administration, are supported by the Ministry of Culture on the basis of support tests called the “Fringe Regulation” – production projects.

The Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality, as part of the Culture Division, has been supporting our association on an ongoing basis since 2020. In addition to the municipality’s ongoing support in our activities as an umbrella organization, the municipality also assists us in various projects we initiate: in 2020 , And realized a project designed for young artists: “Circle of Young Artists” which aims to provide a “toolbox” for self-management for theater and performance creators in their infancy.

The Lottery Board has for many years supported independent creators and creations. Many of the association’s members have received and are receiving grants for both new productions and runs of existing productions around the country. The Mifal HaPais grant allowed us, as an association, to hold meetings with international artists for two years (2016-2017). The meeting program was prepared in collaboration with the Israel Festival, Jerusalem.

We are members of the Forum of Cultural and Art Institutions. The goals of the forum: promoting and strengthening culture and art in Israel, strengthening and establishing cultural and artistic institutions throughout the country and from all fields, to work to increase the culture budget and increase support for institutions, to work to expose Israeli culture and creativity in Israel and around the world. The forum has many cultural institutions from all fields of art in Israel. Full details of the forum’s activities and its members – on the forum’s website.

Together with the Israel Festival, we have arranged meetings of independent artists with the best artists who come to the Israel Festival. In 2016 we hosted the creator Philip Ken, and in 2017 we launched the IB # 1 meeting – between work and production, which dealt with the “seam” between production and work, and we hosted the world theater legend – Robert Wilson and the young and promising creator – Tom Luz. Thank you To the staff of the Israel Festival for the partnership that was there and for all those who are still on the way.

Thoughts On Independent Creation

What is an independent work? Since it is difficult to offer an unequivocal and agreed-upon answer to this question, the text below mainly offers thoughts on the present and reflections on the desired.

In the technical sense, the term ‘independent work’ refers to theatrical and performance works created outside the theatrical establishment or done in collaboration with some production institution, provided that the creators maintain an independent status expressed in that they bear overall responsibility for their work, not only on the artistic level but also on the production level. . In fact, the working conditions and the nature of the work of the independent creators make the production process an integral part of the directing work.

In its ideological sense, the term ‘independent creation’ refers to a form of doing that expresses independent thinking in the full sense of the word, operating hand in hand with creative freedom and with productive entrepreneurship. Independent creators are free creators: free to choose their work materials, cast as they see fit and ponder the artistic language, without taking into account the rating considerations of a large hall and without being enslaved for the purpose of pleasing the audience or the artistic directors. Hence, that the independent creators not only independently produce their works, for all that this implies, but also artistically manage their way.

Not all creators choose independent work as an ideal option, and not even as a first option, given the difficulties involved in this form of doing. But, even if some of the creators came to it almost reluctantly, in the absence of other options, many of them chose to stick to it in the long run because this way allows them the freedom to choose what is right for them to create and how they are right to create it.

Independent creators learn over time to specialize in things that go beyond the artistic endeavor itself: production, fundraising, account management, marketing, branding, and more. Their form of work requires them to take initiative and places a great deal of responsibility on them, because they carry on their backs the overall management of their work, from its preliminary stages to its ongoing running. The claim of the creators to professionalism is therefore a binding requirement, since their artistic, productive and value-based conduct affects the way in which the entire field of independent creation is perceived in consciousness.

The Independent Creators’ Organization was established with the aim of leveraging and empowering the work of the individuals who are members of it: artists who work individually and yet strive to belong to the information-sharing community. The motive for the establishment of the organization was the desire to promote the means of production of the independent creators and to address various production issues they encounter in their making – all in a reality where they are forced to invest their energy, time and private money each month in an effort to ensure the survival of their works. In the long run, however, the organization’s ambition is to become a home for independent artists, a home that will be a space for a fruitful discussion about the artistic identity of independent work in Israel, its ideological agenda and ways to promote and cultivate it In the belief that even with limited financial means it is possible to create works that are rich in form and plan, which will constitute an alternative to action that takes place within the boundaries of the establishment. (The text was written by Ira Avnery in collaboration with IB creators ).
