FringeArts Festival 2017
« on: March 01, 2017, 10:53:59 AM »
The annual Fringe Festival seeks to amplify the creative voices in and around Philadelphia and we're inviting you to grab the mic! Whether you have been creating art for years or you are just starting to experiment, your work deserves a platform to connect with audiences and artists from all over.  Each September, the Fringe Festival explodes into every nook and cranny in neighborhoods across Philadelphia with more than 1,000 artistically daring performances, with works that are produced by independent artists and promoted by FringeArts. Artists of all mediums are invited to register a show, digital work, exhibition, or event in the Festival. For those looking to capture the Festival audience virtually, our innovative Digital Fringe platform allows digital based artists to create works such as podcasts, live streams, and interactive digital experiences for audiences to enjoy no matter where they are..

Thinking of joining in the fun? Here are some things you should know:
- the Festival reaches over 30,000 audience members
- a photo and description of each show will be featured in the Festival guide
- our box office team doubles in size to provide full service during the Festival
- all presenters will receive a custom sandwich board to place outside their venues
- all artists involved recieve an Artist Rush Card that gets them a $5 ticket, 5 minutes before any show in the Festival
- first time Fringe Festival artists receive a registration discount
FringeArts is working harder than ever to make sure you get the most out of the Festival. Every independent artist will have access to a list of resources, contacts, venues, and more. New producers can look over our sample budgets, attend workshops, and work with our Festival Coordinator to make your show a success. It is no secret that organizing a city-wide festival takes an incredible amount of dedication and collaboration, and we look forward to working with you in this endeavor!
