Melbourne Fringe is committed to being an accessible festival for all artists and audience members.

We passionately encourage Fringe artists to consider ways to make events more accessible for the broader community, including those living with disability or who are Deaf. Whether that’s through organising an Auslan interpreted evening, going all out and making a physical theatre work with a high visual rating or opening up a session as a relaxed performance option, there’s plenty you can do and we’re happy to help you get started.

A great place to begin is our quick guide. If you have any questions or want to chat through your ideas, give the Artists Services team a call on 03 9660 9600.

Melbourne Fringe acknowledges that it has a positive role to play in addressing the environmental issues that jeopardise the planet’s ecosystems and the future of local communities.

We aim to ensure:

  • Our artists have access to information and resources to support sustainable artistic practice and production
  • Melbourne Fringe incorporates sustainability into strategic and operational decision making;
  • Melbourne Fringe encourages and supports a community dialogue around issues of sustainability and climate change.
