The community driven arts festival runs from 17 to 26 July and organisers are promising another program full of cool, eclectic offerings.
“The Darwin Fringe Festival is a wonderful outlet for independent and diverse local artists,” Arts and Museums Minister Gary Higgins said.
“And the Territory Government is proud to be supporting the Fringe again this year with $10,000 in Community Festivals funding towards the event.”
Local Member John Elferink said the Fringe has a long history in Darwin.
“I was delighted to see the re-emergence of the Fringe last year and I understand this year the organisers are planning to show a Fringe which sizzles,” Mr Elferink said.
“It’s yet another local event to look forward to and to discover something new and interesting!”
For artists, being part of the Fringe means reaching new audiences, having access to different venues and the opportunity to experiment, receive feedback and develop professionally.
“For audiences, it’s a chance to delight in the different and support our local arts community,” Minister Higgins said.
“I urge everyone to get involved and support the Fringe.”
Minister Elferink added: “Best wishes to everyone involved in organising the Fringe.”
