The Darwin Fringe Festival will not be held in 2010. Darwin Community Arts (DCA), which manages the Festival, invited the Darwin arts community in 2009 and early 2010 to take over the Fringe but we have had no response so far. DCA is happy to discuss handing over the management of the Fringe to another body for 2011. Contact DCA on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Thanks everyone for a fantastic fringe festival! Thanks to all of our sponsors, community of artists, arts workers, and the Darwin public and beyond for a great two weeks. To upload your photos and videos of the festival, please go to our Facebook page. Just search Fringe at the Bank on Facebook, and become a fan!
Welcome to the Darwin Fringe Festival 2009.
The Festival this year is known as Fringe at the Bank and is being held at Darwin's historic landmark, the old Commonwealth Bank on the corner of Smith and Bennett Streets, in the heart of the city.
WHEN: 4 - 9 pm WEDNESDAY 12 - SATURDAY 15 AUGUST
4 - 9 pm WEDNESDAY 19 - SATURDAY 22 AUGUST
For two weeks, an exciting hothouse of arts experimentation, performance and workshops will be created. With an emphasis on collaboration, thriving and interactive art from a diverse range of art organizations, in unexpected and suggestive spaces, will inspire and tempt you to become involved.
Thrown into the mix will be 'provocateurs' who will be drawn from the pool of Festival artists from all over Australia, and they will provoke, fuel and entice the locals. Expect the unexpected.
So, come on in, meet the artists, follow their work, become involved or join a workshop. There's something for everyone.
It's all FREE, ever-changing and an incubator for new skills, new experiences, new connections and new creations.
See you there!
