PUSHING BOUNDARIES – MELBOURNE FRINGE CHALLENGES ARTISTS ACROSS VICTORIA
Melbourne Fringe is actively encouraging artists from outside Melbourne’s metropolitan area to participate in the 2006 Melbourne Fringe Festival - Victoria’s largest annual celebration of independent arts.
Through its new initiative, Fringe Without Boundaries, the festival is challenging artists, venues and councils throughout Victoria to consider the essence of Melbourne Fringe – new ideas celebrating creativity and artistic expression – and to present works as part of this major event in their local community.
Melbourne Fringe Festival is completely Open Access - any artists can participate either in their local area, or in the city of Melbourne. Artists should contact Melbourne Fringe and the cultural services division of their local Council to flag interest, learn more about registering an event and find out about other Fringe Without Boundaries activities in their city.
Registrations for the 2006 Melbourne Fringe Festival open on 29 May and close on 16 June. To find out more about registering your event visit
