If you’ve got an idea of an event, an exhibition, an arena spectacular, we want to know about it.
No matter who you are or where you’re from, your art matters.
Fringe is open access, which means that anyone can register to be part of the Festival. We champion inclusion, diversity, freedom of expression and amplifying voices on the margins.
So be a part of the Festival that celebrates creativity in all its glory and enjoy the warm embrace of our artistic community’s giant retractable arms.
