In the absence of a physical space this year, we would like to welcome all Fringe participants to the first Fringe Central virtual hub

Our online hub will allow you to attend events, connect and collaborate with other artists, or simply drop in and talk to a member of the Fringe Society team in real time, replicating the welcoming, open-door environment of Fringe Central in August. The new digital platform will feature more than 30 free online events from Friday 07 August to Monday 31 August.

Events will be delivered alongside 20 partner organisations including COMMON, The Sick of the Fringe and Birds of Paradise, and will explore important issues in the arts sector, from greater diversity to mental health, as well as focusing on skills building and industry knowledge. After each event, you can keep the conversation going in chat rooms, as you would in the foyer of Fringe Central. You will also get the chance to network with fellow artists and industry folk in relaxed and creative ways, and each day will kick off with joy-filled Daily Dancing sessions hosted by Cultured Mongrel Dance Theatre. 

Events are free to all artists and will be BSL interpreted. We’ll be adding more throughout the month, along with a list of external events and opportunities available throughout August. There's also a whole section populated with further resources on goal setting, networking, touring, marketing and other topics of interest to regular Fringe artists. 

So sign up and create a profile to get the most out of what’s on offer, we look forward to seeing you there!
