The Darwin Fringe Festival aims to create an intentional space for artists and audiences to take risks on new art, different ideas and unique experiences. We strive to build moments where our creatives and community can walk away feeling empowered, reflected and celebrated.
We work super hard to create as many safe spaces as possible by scouring over a show’s themes and synopsis; however we rarely get to preview a work in full before programming because many have never been performed before. So there are still actions that we cannot foresee or account for when dealing with hundreds of creatives from many different backgrounds. We are always still growing and still learning.
In the event that you do experience anything that makes you feel uncomfortable, that goes against our No TRAASH Policy or the Policies of the All Good Project please feel free to let a volunteer on site, our team or the All Good Project know through any of the below contact methods. This includes any processes or experiences that you have with the Darwin Fringe. We will en-devour to get back to you as soon as possible and will be transparent when responding to the issue.
To help us on our Mission with have employed a NO TRAASH policy to our entire festival program and are happy that our auspicing body, Brown’s Mart is a part of Music NT’s All Good Project. Some of our other general venues are also proudly a part of this project, you can check HERE.

The All Good Project
MusicNT’s All Good Project works with local live music venues across the Northern Territory to create safer spaces for staff, performers and patrons.
When a venue elects to participate in the All Good Project they agree to adhere to safety standards as outlined in the program’s policy with the assistance of specialised staff training, extensive program resources and the guidance of MusicNT’s Live Music Venue Best Practice Guidelines.
The need for such a program was identified after many discussions, over many years, with local performers, music lovers and industry personnel that raised concerns regarding the safety of key minority groups within the music community and the culture surrounding safety at gigs.
