In its four short years, our Deadly Fringe development program has supported the birth of a stack of exciting new First Nations-led projects that have toured the country, won awards and given a platform to the incredible breadth of deadly work being made in Melbourne. Deadly Fringe is committed to centring First Nations voices and perspectives. With the support of our Deadly Fringe Producers, we offer financial backing, as well as access to First Nations yarning circles, mentorships and discount tickets for mob.
Deadly Fringe is back with another incredible program unearthing and supporting emerging First Nations artists. These hand-picked works, backed by us and developed especially for Fringe, represent some of the most exciting Fringe work from First Nations artists in the country.
The recipients of our Deadly Fringe Visual Arts Commissions for 2020 were:
