Artist Opportunities

Common Rooms Cash

Applications for Common Rooms Cash are now closed.

Guess who’s back? Our venue Fringe Common Rooms is preparing to reopen – and we want to help get artists back on their feet too. Things might be a little different while we all adapt to this ‘new normal’, but one thing hasn’t changed: our commitment to supporting independent artists.

Common Rooms Cash is a program designed to help artists make their shows and gigs financially viable while taking COVID-19 restrictions into account. We’re supporting one-off shows and gigs that can take place between August and October 2020 with free venue hire and up to $1000 of cold, hard, Common Rooms cash.

Got a sweet idea for a performance, gig, workshop, poetry night or another sort of event entirely? We would LOVE to hear from you!

What do you get?

  • Up to $1000 cash to support your creative vision.
  • FREE venue hire
  • Up to a 4hr call with standard venue technician (additional time charged at $40 per hour)
  • 70% gross box office

What are we looking for?

  • Events with an established audience (e.g a comedy night)
  • Events designed for an intimate audience that will sell out
  • Events that can have audience in person and also livestream
  • Events that connect people (not physically!)
  • You tell us!
