Fringe World Summit

Artrage and The BlueRoom


There are over 100 Fringe Festivals in operation across the world today. The Fringe World Summit is where some of the brightest and boldest minds from across the World of Fringe are gathering for three days of insight and inspiration, as we get ready for Perth Fringe to join the list in 2012.

The summit will introduce Perth to some key Fringe producers who we hope to be working with in years to come, and whose Fringe Festivals we want to see our artists presenting works at in the future. The summit is a great way for local artists, performers, directors, producers, managers, promoters, creative industry and arts professionals, students and interested folk to get valuable perspective as they start to think about Perth Fringe and beyond. We aim for Perth Fringe to be one of the world’s best. We invite all interested parties to join us and be part of it’s final planning.

Patrons can attend one or all of the sessions. The sessions happening at 3.30pm each day are designed for those who can’t attend the full program. The I HEART FRINGE keynote session is recommended if you can only do one.

The Fringe World Summit is produced by ARTRAGE in association with The Blue Room Theatre and venue support from PICA.
