Forest Exchange Lab


WED 20 – FRI 29 Sept 2017

The conversation’s going global as Forest Fringe comes to Melbourne’s Fringe. 

Melbourne’s West hosts UK-based risk-takers (and risk-chasers) Forest Fringe in a two week long creative residency as part of Fringe 2017. The 10-day Forest Exchange Lab is a space for conversation, deep experimentation and creative exchange between three visiting and three local artists. 

The visiting artists are Forest Fringe co-directors Andy Field (UK) and Deborah Pearson (UK/CAN), who will be joined by Forest Fringe Associate Artist Mish Grigor (SYD). The three local artists are…well, it could be you! 

Fringe is calling for Expressions of Interest for local artists to participate in the Forest Exchange Lab, an opportunity to exchange ideas with international artists and take over Melbourne’s West with creative experiments and artists talks. If you’re after some serious Fringe-on-Fringe action, then head out West this Festival.
