Ethics, Diversity and Equity

Melbourne Fringe provides a platform for those on the margins of our society, inviting people in from the fringes and onto cenre-stage to create, present or participate in just about anything you can imagine – and some things you can’t.

Through a range of programs and initiatives, we continue our commitment to reducing barriers to access, championing ethics and pushing for diversity and cultural equity in the arts.

While paperwork might not be the most glamourous parts of the arts, we recognise that actionable, accountable policies are needed to advance big ideas and track their progress. That’s why we’ve created three comprehensive documents that provide us with a map forward as we strive for equity in the arts. Over the next five years, our Equity Action Plan, our Reconciliation Action Plan, and our Deaf and Disability Inclusion Action Plan will guide our work as we continue to improve the representation and the cultural safety of people in our five communities of focus – First Nations people, Deaf and Disabled people, people of colour, women and non-binary people, and the LGBTQIA+ communities.

Melbourne Fringe’s vision for reconciliation is a future where all Australians recognise and value First Nations cultures as one of the oldest continuing cultures in the world. A future where we take ownership of our shared histories and advocate for justice and equity for all Australians.

The aim of the RAP is to build on the organisation’s achievements to date, with a working group including First Nations and non-First Nations staff meeting regularly and engaging with our stakeholders and partners.

The RAP reflects our dedication to systemic change through measurable actions that prioritise opportunities, build respect and deepen relationships with First Nations Peoples.

The organisation is currently developing an Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), scheduled to be completed in 2022.
