IMAASource is a searchable collection of resources and tools for media arts organisations and practitioners from related fields that was developed by the Independent Media Arts Alliance (IMAA).

IMAASource offers access to a comprehensive, interlocking and mutually reinforcing breadth of pre-existing content that has been developed by our close partners, members, or counterparts in other fields. Within IMAASource, you will find toolkits, best practice guides, policy guidelines and protocols, templates of contracts and legal documents, sectoral studies, webinars, podcasts, and more on the following subjects:

  • Governance
  • Human Resources
  • Funding
  • Presentation
  • Preservation
  • Space, Facilities and Equipment
  • Equity, Anti-oppression and Pluralism
  • (Re)conciliation

IMAASource will continue to expand its content to respond to the needs of the media arts community. If you are aware of a resource or tool that you think would be a valuable addition to IMAASource, or you have noticed an outdated or broken link within the database, please get in touch with us at
