Happy Holidays!

Thanks for a great year!

It’s coming up to the holiday season so we just wanted to take this opportunity to say cheers! 2019 has been pretty darn good thanks to all of our supporters, partners, volunteers, ticket holders, staff and extremely dedicated artists.


  • Supported 100 shows with more than 150+ individual performances
  • Put an excess of $70k into the pockets of independent creatives
  • Sold out more than 50% of the program (80% of which was local)

The team this year was steered by two very fresh fruits who would like to sincerely thank everyone who helped to make it all possible. It was an amazingly exciting and scary ride that only happened because of the incredible thriving community that can be found in Darwin. Wishing you a very safe new year!

xoxo Hannah & Tamara

From the Fringes Fundraising Campaign

TARGET $10,000
We’re aiming to fundraise between February to April and we need your help. Every dollar (up to $10,000) will be matched thanks to Creative Partnerships through the Australian Cultural Fund. This money will go towards creating a workshop series that will develop the professional and artistic capacity of Top End creatives. We’ll touch on everything from invoicing, pitches and arts at tax time as well as creating the opportunity for deeper discussion, ideas generation and technique building.

DONATING To get on board you’ll be able to donate through an online campaign, a fundraiser event or through our From the Fringes Donor circle. These opportunities will roll out in the new year.

ARTISTS Applications to attend these workshops will open by mid 2020.


We want to hear from artists about what workshops you feel could help you to further your practice. We want to hear from all genres, ages, skill levels and Territory post codes. Complete the survey before midnight on Thursday December 19th and you could win 2 tickets to the 2020 opening night party PLUS a 2019 shirt!
