about fringe

Showcasing work in every genre you can think of (and a few that might be made up), the Darwin Fringe Festival is a community arts festival with bite.


The Darwin Fringe is an open-access festival that supports the development of the arts community, providing opportunities for all artists to emerge, experiment and showcase new and diverse works in Darwin to local and national audiences.


A supportive, diverse and exciting local arts sector, with opportunities for sustainable artistic growth, attracting local and national interest.


The Darwin Fringe Festival is a bold initiative that excites experimentation, artistic risk, and new creative voices. We support independent and diverse artists to present work that might otherwise not have an audience or presentation platform locally.

We accept applications from artists to present as part of our Open Access Program or into one of our Curated Hub venues.
For more information about us, you, and how we make the thing happen together and for with our community check out our 2017 Artist Pack.
