At Fringe Central we offer support on all aspects of participating in the Fringe, as well as practical services for those visiting the Fringe, such as access to computers, printing and free wifi.
The Artist Support, Arts Industry, Artist Development and Media teams will be based within Fringe Central during August, helping those participating in the Fringe to navigate their visit and offering a space for anyone with questions to ask or just in need of a break.
Every event in the programme is free for registered Fringe participants, and the first batch is now available to browse and book on Fringe Connect, the Fringe Society’s online platform for artists and industry.
Includes guidance on getting started on TikTok, content strategies and how to generate revenue through the app.
